Use dynamic minors for any new device

I wouldn't inline this - the compiler will figure it out for you and
you've got a fair bit code there.

This gets called from handle_events which gets called from the ist
handler with IRQs disabled. I'm surprised it works at all but you
definitely don't want to be doing all this work with interrupts blocked.
That may be part of your problem.

Ditto

(for the unknown case you also need to do
		termios->c_cflag &= ~CSIZE;
		termios->c_cflag |= CS8;

so the caller gets informed they didn't get their requested feature

Likewise btw for unsupported features. In this case CMSPAR appears not to
be supported ?)

Reading drivers/tty/serial/max310x.c may be helpful with regards to the
locking. It is SPI based so also has to defer some of the processing from
the IRQ handler. The threaded IRQ support we now have may also help you.
