Subject[PATCH v3 1/6] serial: imx: remove CTSC and CTS handling from imx_disable_dma
From: Nandor Han <>

The CTSC and CTS bits affect operation of the CTS/RTS hardware flow
control signal (depending on whether the device is in DCE or DTE mode) and
are not related to DMA. When in RS-232 mode, the driver is using the
automatic CTSC control based on a rxFIFO fill level unless the state of
the CTS signal is explictly set via an ioctl call.

Previous improvements to the imx serial driver have resulted on
imx_disable_dma() only being called on shutdown, by which point the
serial core has already correctly deasserted CTS.

Testing shows that without this handling in imx_disable_dma() the CTS
signal state is set correctly when the device is open and TIOCM_RTS is
set/cleared via the TIOCMGET ioctl. The CTS signal is also correctly
deasserted when the device file is closed.

When in RS-485 mode, the driver uses the CTS signal very differently and
appears to control it via calls to imx_port_rts_active() and

This configuration of the CTSC and CTS bits are therefore not needed.
