I like the idea. It's long term, and cleaner.

            chip superio/foo/bar		# Super I/O
              device pnp 2e.1 on		# Com1
                io 0x60 = 0x3f8
                irq 0x70 = 4

So not only would we specify that the superio hosts the serial console,
but also at which address that is, eliminating the need for
in romstage.c
