Well, more importantly, why would we do something like this in the first

Wouldn't it be a _lot_ better to just use the bog-standard
"suspend/resume" callbacks, and let serial drivers just suspend/resume on
their own, instead of having upper layers generate these fake
"set_termios()" calls?

The serial layer should use set_termios() when users set the termios state
(surprise surprise), not to emulate suspend/restore.

Real hardware tends to want to do a lot more _anyway_ for suspend/restore,
so the argument that "set_termios()" already exists as an interface is
pretty bogus.
