I just replied in another email before seeing this one, but knowing what 
you want I can make a better reply (for the GTA02, the file I have is 
um_s3c2442b_rev12.pdf from the Samsung website):

- Chapter 1 (overview), the big pinout diagram (1-6), both tables 
following it (1-15 has the three pins in question at the bottom, at N22, 
AA13, AE14), the legend for the table (1-21, 1-22), the following table 
doesn't say much but has the signals again (on the UART and clock sections).
- Chapter 7 (clock & power), the diagram (7-3), the PPL values table 
(7-23) which is where 48MHz comes from (note that 96MHz is also an 
option, but I think the USB block needs 48MHz; we should check the 
kernel and u-boot source to see which mode they are using).
- Chapter 9 (I/O ports) has the GPH control registers (9-20) which is 
where the default state for the pins come from, and MISCCR (9-25) which 
choses which clock will be output.
- Chapter 11 (UART) has right on the introduction a mention of UEXTCLK 
(11-1), the baud rate generator description (11-7), and the UBRDIV 
divider registers (11-21).
- Chapter 25 (electrical data) should also say something about the pins 
electrical and timing characteristics, but I couldn't find anything more 
relevant than the generic voltage and current limits.

Note also that in some places it calls it UCLK instead of UEXTCLK (in 
particular in some tables at chapter 1).
