OK, most of the uarts I've seen, but not all, on the MIPS boards, are
16C550 style UARTs.
All the same it would be desirable not to enable 'options uart_ns8520'
in all cases.

I didn't point this out in my original message, but my concern with the
commit as a whole, was more to do with the fact that GEOM_MBR and
GEOM_BSD were being enabled by default.
For a kernel shipping on a system where there are no UFS filesystems or
DOS style partitions, and often a 1MB kernel size limit (which may be
compressed) it might be more desirable not to ship those by default.
Same re uart_ns8250.
