Uh, this doesn't have anything to do with RS-232C (well, EIA-232D). In
fact, with an 8250/16450/16550 clocked at 115.2KHz, which is common in
most x86 hardware, you simply use a divisor of 4.
Note that the suggestion for setting the speed higher isn't wrong. You'll
take advantage of the compression in the modem better.
