Calling tty_flip_buffer_push from an interrupt is perfectly acceptable
providing tty->low_latency isn't set: which it isn't.

The generic driver is a very bad example to follow in some areas but
this looks a big improvement. There are some patches reworking the
generic code to use kfifo on the output side which make it vastly better.
Not sure where the relevant google submissions went ?

If you only have a single bit use the set_bit/clear_bit/test_and_xxx_bit
stuff as it's faster on most boxes

You need && flag == TTY_NORMAL ?

Definitely a move in the right direction
