That's commit 1ec3ba93c5fad9dca0dab272491c625fe6a2f67d

Staging: remove drivers/char/scc.h as it should have gone a while ago

This was needed by one of the generic serial drivers that was removed a
while ago. No one even noticed that the driver could not be built
properly while it was in the staging directory.

So this removed the unneeded .h file.

Funny, Google doesn't seem to find any evidence this patch has ever been
posted on a public maling list?

Anyone, no real harm done.

Just for the record, there are two reason no one noticed that
drivers/staging/generic_serial/vme_scc.c no longer compiled:
1. linux-next doesn't build staging,
2. The m68k tree still has the (too long) work-in-progress atari_scc driver.
The Atari SCC driver was the original user of scc.h, so when I moved that
one to drivers/staging/ in the m68k tree, it masked compile
failures for vme_scc
in mainline.
