Thanks for an update, my comments below.

unsigned int base_baud = baud * 16;

While it looks indeed better, I would rather like to have a confirmation
it's working as designed.

For example, when I did some calculus, I cooked a preliminary check in
Python (easy and fast to prototype), for example:
https://gist.github.com/andy-shev/06b084488b3629898121 in Python, or
commit 9df461eca18f ("spi: pxa2xx: replace ugly table by approximation")
in the kernel.

Or another one here https://gist.github.com/andy-shev/8b2a73aeca2874f4cc
89 and commits c1a67b48f6a5 ("serial: 8250_pci: replace switch-case by
formula for Intel MID"), 21947ba654a6 ("serial: 8250_pci: replace
switch-case by formula")

P.S. The code itself looks good to me, thanks!
