Thank you that makes life easier.

Thank you for the testing.

I couldnt test this in RZ/Gx as the hscif interface is connected to
wifi, but I did manage to trigger this
on M3N following are the steps:
1: Set console as ttySC1 in booatargs
2: The login console will come up on both SC0&1
3: Login through SC0
4: Append securetty file: echo ttySC1 >> /etc/securetty
5: Login through SC1 (CN26 on M3N)
6: And finally I repeated your steps using stty on SC1 (CN26) to
introduce parity error.

probably testing this on SuperH is gonna be a pain due to lack of
hardware availability,
(it needs to be tested on 19 platforms)
how about #ifdef CONFIG_ARCH_RENESAS || CONFIG_H8300 and the fix ?
