The uart is just different enough to make that hard, though I admit I never spent too much time on it. Sounds like it's time to revisit it again.I would prefer to have a patch to remove (or ack to do so myself) the above three mentioned functions so I can avoid breaking your driver, rather than a large update to it.
Go for it. I'll test the driver afterwards and think about getting it into the 8250 again.
