No, it just enables flow control by default on all serial ports. You can
change it for individual ports in your application, using

Or change the default to "NONE" for all ports via
CYGDAT_IO_SERIAL_FLOW_CONTROL_DEFAULT (pppd will enable it on its own
serial device, unless you tell it not to)

Actually the requirement is on the flow control support code. There is
no requirement on flow control being enabled for the serial device used
by pppd (and it works pretty well when disabled too).
