Thats not quite what the code actually implements though.

If thats how the hardware works and only supports a few fixed rates then
fine, but for default: you need to actually update he baudrate in the
passed termios struct so that the userspace knows its request was not
matched.

Take a look how the standard 8250 termios does it.

Also looking at this and some of the other serial bits I see no
dependencies on the problematic DMA driver, so does that mean you've got
a set of pieces that can be submitted anyway while the DMA driver
discussion continues ?
