just to write what's new.
It doesn't work in 3.18.0-linux4sam too.
It looks like select or poll function has some problem with it, it goes through after 25ms timeout for a while without
anything received and then it receives about 2000 chars. Physically it receives about 30 chars every 25ms.
3.18.13 is the latest kernel where it works correctly.
