There is more changes in 2.6.21-rc4 please try that.
I am still getting reports of timeouts with that code but
it does recover better. It may be the case that with hardware
flow control transmits can take an indefinite period so increasing
the timeout value could help.

Until, unless the problem is reproducible with my hardware
there is not much that can be done. I'll add the better recovery
logic to for next stable cycle, but still not clear what causes
all the timeouts.
