I think you are right, currently there is no
support in termios for line conditions like
hangup, ring etc. And it would be good to have
that support in termios.
Some time back Eric Norum memntioned, that he
intends to port the FreeBSD termios system to
RTEMS, I guess this would contain a signalling
mechanism aswell, but I don't know how far he got
Any changes/additions to termios should (IMHO) be
made in a compatible way, so that existing
drivers based on termios need not be modified.
