The header says the function sometimes fail :-/

What it does is set the UART in loopback mode and saturate it with
256 bytes to overflow the FIFO, then check how many chars
were in the FIFO to determine FIFO size.

Could it be that your variant does not clear the FIFO overflow
correctly and get stuck in some error state? Maybe try clearing
some error flags at the end of this function?
