Comment(by Sascha):

 I think hardware handshaking works fine for GSM (no bytes get lost), but
 the overrun flag is set anyway. This results in one additional 0x00 byte
 for each overrun.

 With the attached patch the serial driver doesn't forward the overruns,
 works without problems since 1 hour (of course I still get the rxerr

 So I guess the uart is not properly initialized?
