In fact, this problem is described in UPDATING:
The TTY subsystem of the kernel has been replaced by a new
implementation, which provides better scalability and an
improved driver model. Most common drivers have been migrated to
the new TTY subsystem, while others have not. The following
drivers have not yet been ported to the new TTY layer:
cy, digi, rc, rp, sio
ng_h4, ng_tty, ppp, sl, snp
Adding these drivers to your kernel configuration file shall
cause compilation to fail.
But "Hardware Notes" has all this devices listed as supported.
Probably, this devices (except for ng_tty, which was updated in
20081225) must be marked as temporary unsupported until
their drivers were fixed.
