Description Poul-Henning Kamp 2011-09-03 21:00:20 UTC
	I'm running Soekris NET4801 doing data collection, it has been
	running stable for years.

	Recently I added a USB-serial port running in raw mode
	at 300/7/EVEN

	The machine started freezing hard and recovered only when the
	watchdog kicked in.

	When frozen, there is no serial console reaction, no packet
	traffic and no signs of a panic message.

	I tried two different USB-serial dongles, one UPLCOM and
	one UFTDI, apart from a possibly slightly different frequency,
	no difference.

	Disabling the software on the USB serial port, made the freezes
	go away.

	I have now moved the parity check into software, running the
	port as 300/8/NONE instead, and the problem has not been seen

	Has anybody ever tested a parity error on a USB serial port ?
