Looks like this might fix an actual (harmless?) bug, if anyone evers
configures a VSTOP or VSTART character with bit 7 set?

    info->x_char = ch; // x_char is int, hence sign-extended

transmit_chars() does:

    amiga_custom.serdat = info->x_char | 0x100;

which will inadvertently have all high bits sets, including the bit
9, which is only used if PARENB is enabled.  But as it looks like
PARENB handling is broken in amiseral anyway, this doesn't matter

include/linux/tty.h:#define STOP_CHAR(tty) ((tty)->termios.c_cc[VSTOP])
include/linux/tty.h:#define START_CHAR(tty) ((tty)->termios.c_cc[VSTART])

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
