Subject[patch] config: fix make kvmconfig
make kvmconfig selects CONFIG_SERIAL_8250 without selecting its 
dependencies causing some configs to fail:

drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c:57:32: error: 'CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_RUNTIME_UARTS' undeclared here (not in a function)
drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c:2712:47: error: 'CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_NR_UARTS' undeclared here (not in a function)

drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c: In function 'early_serial_setup':
drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c:2971:20: error: negative width in bit-field '<anonymous>'
drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c: At top level:
drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.c:2712:30: warning: 'serial8250_ports' defined but not used [-Wunused-variable]

Fix this by selecting CONFIG_TTY as well, which CONFIG_SERIAL_8250

Ok, so this patch has been sitting in linux-next for well over a year and
has had to be fixed several times with follow up commits similar to this.
Linus hasn't pulled kvmtool, so I'm wondering why we need to keep this
around in the first place?
