Wait, are you saying if you do

dma pause
read residue
dma terminate

then it is acceptable for there to be data loss, because it can be
blamed on the terminate? In that case the usage of dmaengine in all
the 8250 serial drivers is broken. Every time there is a break in the
incoming rx data, the 8250 driver does pause/residue/terminate which
could potentially cause data from the incoming data stream to be
dropped.
