Add another hardware serial port to Arduino (MAX3100 library)

A complete Arduino library for the MAX3100 serial UART/USART chip can be downloaded below. There have been many requests for an Arduino library for the MAX3100 external serial USART (UART) chip from Maxim Integrated. As an example of the minor changes needed to use the MAX3100's serial port instead of (or in addition to) the built in serial port, here is some sample code (note the lower case 's' is the only change needed to use the new serial port).
