At least lsr and msr are (or will be in patch 6) updated by the
interrupt_callback. I am happy to add another lock (for
interrupt-context it would need a spinlock rather than a mutex,
right?). I am just surprised that is considered cleaner than using
atomic_t.

For mcr I am not sure whether a race between tiocmget and tiocmset is
possible. I didn't see any obvious locking in usb-serial.c or
tty_io.c, that's why I used an atomic_t. Am I missing something?

Will do somewhere tomorrow. Mike and I are working out how to combine
our patches.

Groeten,
Bart
