But on second thought, I think your approach here makes sense. If
usbserial ever gains generic IXON support, we'd just fall back to the
line-discipline implementation whenever the control characters do no

Just clean up some of the lengthy conditionals (e.g. using intermediate
bools), and mention why you implemented things the way you did in the
commit message.
