See discussion of the initial-state and lock-state devices in the sio
Another, hacky way to do it is like this:
sleep 1000 < /dev/cuaa0&
stty -f /dev/cuaa0 speed 1200
The sleep holds the device open so that the values set using stty remain
effective. Without the sleep the stty values are only effective while
the command is being executed because stty opens the device and then,
once stty exits, the device is closed and all the new settings are lost.
