Fixing up the patch, I looked at this one. It might actually do that.
Without having changed anything. The doc says: "The driver should

implementation is really not draining any FIFO, but just disabling the
transmitter. I take your question as that this might not be this way?
Should stop_tx drain the FIFO first?
