It is incorrect in that connection speed seems to be set by that
option to 115200 baud, yet the comment line following that very
action states that the default speed is 9600 baud. That discrepancy
was not present in 4.2.
Explicit? All I'm trying to say is that the commentary ought to
read "# speed for serial console (default 115200)". Is all. When
talking from the perspective of the kernel build. By setting that
option that becomes the default speed. Maybe something like
"# speed ... console (used to be 9600)" if a hint to old 'default'
speed is wanted.
It's a matter of interpretation. The (PC) hardware defaults indeed
to 9600 bps and Xoff/Xon I believe. But that's the hardware. This
is the kernel. It overrides the hardware default and changes it to
a new default. Which the sysop can change yet again by stty(1). So
I just happend to notice the changed setting and unchanged comment,
is all. Furthermore, I can imagine people becoming confused by that
very discrepancy. It says two different things. One the action, the
other the explanation given for that action.
