And... another point. UARTMODEM_TXCTSE and UARTMODEM_RXRTSE are the
auto flow control _enable_ signals. That's not something that
get_mctrl() should ever return. get_mctrl() is about reporting the
actual current state of the CTS, DSR, DCD and RI signals _only_.
If the hardware doesn't let you read the state, then reporting that
CTS, DSR and DCD are all asserted is recommended, as that's the
state needed to make the UART do useful stuff. So that part of
this patch is the sane thing to do.
What isn't sane is to use the auto-cts enable bit to report a
ficticious current CTS state.
