My fault. I didn't notice that a few lines lower the low_latency flag is
alredy set and I thought I should set it. After removing that, g_serial
started working. :) Thanks a lot.

I noticed that there is also a comment:
/* low_latency means ldiscs work in tasklet context, without
* needing a workqueue schedule ... easier to keep up.
*/
So in low latency mode calls are made from a tasklet. This is not true in
my case, as the S3C OTG UDC driver does all its job in interrupts. This
way also a (usb) packet_done callback is done from an interrupt. I expect
that g_serial driver interacts with tty layer in that packet_done callback,
so this is the source of the problems. I noticed that some other UDC
drivers also does all its job from an interrupt, so they also might be
affected. How this bug should be properly resolved?

Best regards
