I think this is all working as expected now. PNP automatically configures the port and enables it. The 8250_pnp driver automatically claims it. And I assume the port "just works" without any setserial or sysfs manipulations at all. Does that solve your issue?

Yes, it solved my issue:) Big thanks to you!

We need to think a bit more about whether this the right approach for handling _SRS and whether it's in the right place. But I think this is a start, at least.


Please push the patch to Linus so he can include it to his tree to solve os-controlled devices so they can automatically be used under Linux.

Thank you Andrey and Bjorn for helping out!
