apbuartN is not recognized, only console_N. Either to include your driver or
to use CONSOLE_USE_INTERRUPTS=1 i have to recompile rtems. I'll give it a

I have seen in your driver that rtems_termios_bufsize() can be used to
change the driver buffer size. Can i use it to change the RX and TX size of
the console_N driver?
