[PATCH] cpukit: Add nxp-sc16is752 serial device driver

I applied this patch and tried building the raspberrypi BSP and got this error:
../../../../../../../rtems-src/rtems/c/src/../../cpukit/dev/serial/nxp-sc16is752.c:17:27: fatal error: bsp/atsam-spi.h: No such file or directory
Will this only build for the atsam BSP?
I am interested in this driver. The Raspberry Pi only has one usable UART. I have a SC16IS750 device I would like to use to add a couple of UARTs to my board so I could connect a GPS and keep the original UART free.
To use this, we will have to supply the new Linux user API SPI driver for the Raspberry Pi similar to the spi driver in the atsam BSP, correct?

This particular serial device (NXP SC16IS752) is attached via an I2C or SPI bus. So, this is highly board/application specific. Adding such a device to a particular BSP would end up in a configuration nightmare.

The drawback is that you have to use IMFS as the base file system. However, its just a matter of doing it to strip down the IMFS to have similar size demands than the current devfs.
