    At the moment you can't. That needs fixing. Most of the infrastructure is
    there but not all of it.

    I do not want PPS code adding to every single serial driver. That way
    lies madness. We do it once, and in the right layer. I'll take a further
    look at it after the tty->ops patch is merged. At that point we'll be in
    a good position to add the needed ops/callbacks.
