Description G. Paul Ziemba 2010-02-20 09:40:01 UTC
termios(4) says:
"The CCTS_OFLOW (CRTSCTS) flag is currently unused."

Yet code in /usr/src/sys/dev/uart/uart_tty.c references CCTS_OFLOW and as far as I know, it works. Hasn't it worked forever?


Proposed replacement text:

    If CCTS_OFLOW (CRTSCTS) is set, transmission is stopped when CTS is lowered and resumed when CTS is raised.

Maybe similar treatment is warranted for CRTS_IFLOW?

patch to fix this.

* change CRTSCTS to show it is the same as CCTS_OFLOW|CRTS_IFLOW
* remove text saying CRTSCTS is unused. it is used and works
* add missing flow control pin configurations
* change definition of MDMBUF to show it is an alias of CCAR_OFLOW
* remove MDMBUF text in line with other flow control pins
