  1. I suggest you check if UART2 RTS is working on this hardware/software first. You can connecting some state indicator (LED, voltmeter, ...) to its pin and manual change RTS state (eg. Ctrl-A Ctrl-G in picocom). If RTS work OK you can try my patch. I'm not familiar with NanoPi Neo Core and I don't know how serial hardware is on its chip, so if it's not compatible with 8250_dw patch will not work. To use my patch you must build your own kernel image (https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/) with applying this patch (put it to "patch/kernel/sunxi-current" should do this).
  2. So ... I was trying to look too. Looks like this patch (series) make mess with your rs485-8250 patch, but don't enable software emulated rs485 for dw variant nor provide own workaround for chips without "end transmit" interrupt. I created minimal patch for add this workaround (from your patch) to current kernel: diff --git a/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_dw.c b/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_dw.c index 9c00d7504..bc8cd87ee 100644 --- a/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_dw.c +++ b/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_dw.c @@ -469,6 +469,10 @@ static int dw8250_probe(struct platform_device *pdev) p->set_ldisc = dw8250_set_ldisc; p->set_termios = dw8250_set_termios; + p->rs485_config = serial8250_em485_config; + up->rs485_start_tx = serial8250_em485_start_tx; + up->rs485_stop_tx = serial8250_em485_stop_tx; + p->membase = devm_ioremap(dev, regs->start, resource_size(regs)); if (!p->membase) return -ENOMEM; diff --git a/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_port.c b/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_port.c index be779eb9e..c9f5b626e 100644 --- a/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_port.c +++ b/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_port.c @@ -1541,8 +1541,14 @@ static inline void __stop_tx(struct uart_8250_port *p) * shift register are empty.

  3. Hi, do you update/fix rs485-8250 patch for current kernel (5.10)?
