I went browsing in the Linux kernel and couldn't find any code
to disable the FIFO. I'm running a 2.4.16-NANO that's
a couple of years old. Did I miss it and/or is it in newer
I was expecting an ioctl but didn't find any code that turned
off the FIFOs.
I think I could easily hack the kernel. At least for serial ports
using/emulating 16550A class chips which is what I've got.
