Sure if the serial driver can manage TX wake directly. However, the
case I'm thinking needs few hundred milliseconds after toggling the
GPIO before we can even attempt to do TX. I guess what I'm saying
let's not try to stuff any "application specific" GPIO handling to
generic UART code :)

Yes I agree your patches should work for both cases.
