SubjectRE: [PATCH v6] usb-serial:cp210x: add support to software flow control
Hi,  Johan

Do I add my software flow control patch directly to the branch you gave me now ?

Then, I also need the cp210x_ get_ terminus() add ixoff / iXon handling?


With best regards,

Right, with the current implementation you need to make sure that termios reflects the device state on open or your changes will never actually enable software flow control in the device.

No, I didn't mean that IXON should be disabled by default. I meant that the driver should make sure that the device settings matches termios on open, not the other way round.

This unusual implementation has caused a number of issues in the past and it's been on my list fix up for some time. I finally got around to that today and I just CCed you on the result. That should simplify adding software flow control and allow more code to be shared with the hardware flow-control handling.

I've pushed a branch for you here:
