Hi,

The patch title is again exaggerating things. This is a defconfig 
change, so please refer to `git log` output of `arch/mips/configs` and 
use something like "MIPS: Loongson: loongson3_defconfig: enable serial 
console" or "MIPS: Loongson: enable serial console in defconfig". The 
current title reads as if Loongson kernels never were able to use a 
serial console in the past.
