Looks ok, although there is a field ctrl485.enabled as well, that allows you
to use ordinary write() instead of ioctl() to write data.

Seems like the RTS toggling isn't working for you,
please verify that the /SERIAL_INIT pin on PA0 is set to 0:
In the kernelconfig, make sure that the default value for PA0 is an output
and the value 0
also, make sure that you disable the following options ("RS-485 on PA")
which shouldn't be enabled but they are in the 1.90 release:

You can check the value of the PA pins in runtime from a shell using
"hwtestserial -r" or "readbits -p a".

Hope that helps
