It's an i.mx6q (Wandboard quad c1) where I have this problem with 
mainline and much older (but heavily patched freescale 3.10.x based) 
kernels. A quick web-search suggests that this problem exists since a 
long time (noticed mainly by people which try to use BT as this seems to 
be the major use case for high speed serial communication).
