I thought it was 115.2kbps but when I did stty on /dev/ttySAC0 for GSM
connection -- and a whole GUI rootfs was running then so it should talk
to GSM -- it reports it is 9600.
The problem is reported at happening on GSM ttySAC0 so it must be being
reported at 9600 baud presumably.
The only question we can ask is does the symptom disappear when we set
crtscts mode on the tty (and hardware handshaking on the UART then).
If the problem does not go away with hardware handshaking enabled, we
have the wrong idea about the problem.
