Setting NONBLOCK read the filedes and read() returning 0 bytes readed.
But this a poor solution. 
You need set the ioserial driver with an event for reception
and rtems_waitevent(RTMS_EVENT_X,ticstimeout); 

Do you want more information about a rtems_serial_driver for a 14550 UART?

I can help you if you want.
