This is actually yet another regression due to 761ed4a94582 ("tty:
serial_core: convert uart_close to use tty_port_close") which
incidentally removed the call to uart_shutdown() where the cflag was
being saved precisely to avoid the problem you're describing:

ae84db9661ca ("serial: core: Preserve termios c_cflag for console resume")

Judging from a quick look it seems the xmit buf, which is released in
that function may now be leaking too.

Not sure this is the right fix, but I don't have time to look at this
right now.
