I don't think we need to disable the possibility to have emulation even on v4+
IP since PCB can be designed that way. My point here, that whatever code you
add it should not prevent to use HW supported RS485, although I haven't heard
about support of it in the upstream (yet?).

And for the record, Synopsys hadn't added any bit into CPR to recognize that
feature, so only version check can be done in this case...
