Hello everyone,

I'm working on Rockchip rk3399 Nanopc t4 board and I'm trying get serial output
from board using minicom and my board has baudrate 1500000.

I'm using a usb to serial converter. So, when i power on my board minicom starts
to give junk characters.
Minicom version:  2.7.1
USB driver probed : cp210x

But when I use the same setup with my colleagues laptop it gives correct output
(kernel version 4.15.0-52-generic ).

Note that my colleague and i used same setup
Same usb driver probed
Same power adapter
same usb to serial converter wire
same minicom version.
same baudrate

Other thing which i tried is switching kernel version and it turns out
that one of the older
distro kernel on my system (debian 4.9.0-5-amd64 ) is working fine and
it seems like
there is something changed in newer kernel vesions.
Here is the quick summary
4.19.0-4-amd64    -> not working
4.15.0-52-generic -> working
4.9.0-5-amd64      -> working
5.2.0-rc4+             -> not working

Did anyone else faced the similar problem.
Is there any patch available if it is bug ?
Please let me know.

Thanks a lot,
Shyam

Thanks for the report. There were some changes between 4.15 and 4.19
related to the line speed handling which may have broken something in
your setup.

Do you know which variant of cp210x you have? Can your provide the
output of lsusb -v?

Also if you can run driver with debugging enabled when connecting the
device and setting the line speed, that may give a clue about what is
going on. For example,

	echo module cp210x =p > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control

Does 115200 bps still work by the way?

Johan
