Yes, my FT232RL USB-UART converters do not send at higher speeds,
although they report baudrate change.

I do not really know what is going on. Maybe the ftdi-sio driver needs
to be looked at. (It definitely needs to be looked at, because of other
things. Last I looked into it the baudrate change code seemed okay.)

Using pl2303 converter works like a charm.

Note that I have another FT232RL converter for MOX, which works at
1.8V, and on MOX higher speeds work correctly.

Maybe some of the FT232RL chips are those fake ones?

Stefan, could you check in a different way whether your converter can
transfer at higher speed? For example with another device, or in U-Boot
via kermit / ymodem, or whatnot.
