I agree.

Sure we can add another layer of init_termios callbacks, but where is
the right place to store the termios per console?

Should the "struct console co*" get a new member for the baud, or should
it get a termios? The source of the problem is how to inherit the
termios setting from the first user (the console code in this case).

Before making several more implementations it is probably worth
discussing few more of the details. In the current code the ->install
override has the opportunity to apply the fixup by copying something
from a "struct console co* termios" if one existed.

Certainly you could do the same thing with the proposed call back you
mentioned, but then the serial_install() needs to be removed from the
usb code and the power management setup would need to find a new home...
or a copy of the new call back would need to go into the
serial_install() as well.
