[coreboot] patch: set dbe62 to have com2 on com1 address

I still have no LPC dongle, but I am getting closer. I really liked
this as it shows off the power of our new
config system, the dts. There is a whole function in v2 to make com2
operate at the com1 address. For v3, we just set
a value in the mainboard dts and we're done (in theory ; I can't tell
if this works). DBE62 is getting through a lot of POST
btw but hangs at 13.

I just realized this exampel also shows that you do NOT want all dts
values to be visible in Kconfig.
It would make no sense to change these
values on the dbe62.
