It could be a problem specific to some firmware or revision. We've had
a similar quirk with a different USB adapter. The actual calls to keep
changing it are coming from your application however.

You can't do it this way because the speed data is not entirely within
c_cflag. Check c_ispeed and c_ospeed match and for the parity if you want to skip
that check if the parity bits change specifically.
