Sorry! I've red herringed you here. Most drivers were fixed way back in
2.2.x or before. From the Changelog we have:

  Fri Nov 8 20:19:50 1996 Theodore Ts'o <>
    * serial.c (change_speed): Add support for CREAD, as required by POSIX

I just happed to notice the late change on a couple of third party drivers
and jumped to the wrong conclusion.
