    libpayload: Make the 'default serial address' menu item available only on X86
    PCs are lucky, they've had a default serial port for 30+ years, longer
    than most coreboot committers have walked the earth.
    ARMs are insane. There is no "standard" serial port address.
    If there were, the vendors would feel inclined to change it.
    ARMs must always inherit a serial port config from coreboot.
    Don't even bother asking.
