Unfortunately the Mac won't let you easily have ospeed <> ispeed.
There is only one baud rate generator on the 8530. I think (I'll
need to look at the hardware ref at home) that we might be able to
use an external data clock, but that would be the only way to get two
different speeds. :-(

At present, the current ser.c parameter setting routine complains if

----- from around line 740 or so.
        /* check requested parameters */
        if (ospeed < 0 || (t->c_ispeed && t->c_ispeed != t->c_ospeed)) {
                printf("ser: serparam() returning EINVAL\n");
                return (EINVAL);

Take care,
