50 baud is dead

Today I thought I'd hook up a simple DCF77 radio clock receiver,
serial port type, by way of a USB-to-serial converter.  Just to see
how this compares to the same gadget hooked up to an actual serial
port (which are getting rare).

ntpd[37130]: PARSE receiver #1: parse_start: tcsetattr(14, &tio): Input/output error
ntpd[37130]: internal error: refclockio structure not found

It turns out that uplcom(4) adapters don't support the required
speed of 50 baud anymore.

The times they are a-changin'.
