I don't think you can rely on 1. You might succeed to convince a
specific UART driver/hardware to do this, however you'd have to ensure
the same behavior on all other types of UARTs that could be used in
combination with the chip, which doesn't seem feasible.
In case the hardware completely relinquishes control of the RTS pin
upon disabling flow control the state of the signal could depend on
the pin configuration, i.e. whether Linux (or the bootloader) enables
a pull-up/down, which may vary across boards, even if they use the
same SoC.

I think it will have to be the second option.

Cheers

Matthias
