So, the patch has to look like what is below.
I've decided to use the internal set/clear API, because it
allow to ignore the default state of control line (all the troubles
with TIOCM_OUT2/TIOCM_OUT1 on various platforms), so it's definitely a
win.
I'm not too sure about locking. I guess the spinlock in
uart_update_mctrl() is probably good enough.
I was tempted to create the same API for setting the speed
(baud rate), but that may need to wait for another time.

As you can't use IrDA SIR with 2.5.X, would you mind giving a
look at the issue ? Feel free to forward as needed to get comments
from all the interested parties. Thanks in advance...

Have fun...

Jean
