I _think_ the CONFIG_SERIAL_IOBASE was introduced in the kconfig stuff
to be more similar to v3. Once we decide on one or the other, I can
replace the respective occurrences.
I don't care much and would go for CONFIG_TTYS0_BASE as that is what
exists in the codebase. I'll prepare a patch.

Maybe we can get rid of this eventually, but for now this gets in. One
battle at a time.

It will require some more work, as these empty files are still included
at some places I think. I'll keep this open for discussion.
