looks reasonable. Thanks for your patch!
Indeed I can't remember ever using the slcan driver with a real serial
controller hardware with irq line but only via serial-to-USB adapters :-)
Due to the recent fixes from Andre and Alexander these two drivers got in
motion again ...

@Andre/Alexander: Can you please check if slcan still works in your setup. I
don't have that hardware with me. I only was able to compile it successfully.

Just for the records: These two patches would be candidates for stable 3.12+

Thanks,
Oliver
