Interesting, as I decided to pick up an M3-N target, too ;-)

Then I realized you used ttySC1 as the console, so DMA is disabled.
I just used the existing getty I have running on the second serial port,
which had DMA enabled, and no parity errors were triggered, as
sci_receive_chars() is never called.
If I disable DMA for HSCIF1 in the .dtsi, parity errors are detected
as expected.

Hence the driver does not support parity checking when DMA is enabled.
I also think it's not easy to add support for that, if possible at all.

I had a look at a few SuperH docs w.r.t. framing/parity error behavior:
- SCIF(A) on SH7724: similar to R-Car Gen2,
- H(SCIF) on SH7734: same as on R-Car Gen2,
- SCIF on SH7751: conflict between status register ("to be read next")
and flowchart ("read from").

Let's wait a bit, we're in the middle of the merge window anyway.
Probably we can get it tested on SuperH during the coming weeks.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
