Maybe what you need to do is to write a small user app that opens the
serial port, sends a couple of chars, then prompts you to "press any
key", then sends a few more chars, then "press any key", ...

You could connect your embedded system to the linux workstation's serial
port, run minicom to monitor the data stream..  Then, take the CTS input
to the embedded system and set that line active / inactive and see if
your hardware flow control is actually working.
