keyspan_pda_write() uses in_interrupt() to check whether it is safe to
invoke functions which might sleep.

The usage of in_interrupt() in drivers is phased out and Linus clearly
requested that code which changes behaviour depending on context should
either be seperated or the context be conveyed in an argument passed by the
caller, which usually knows the context.

Aside of that it does not cover all contexts which cannot sleep,
e.g. preempt disabled regions which cannot be reliably detected on all
kernel configurations.

With the current printk() implementation console->write() can be invoked
from almost any context. The upcoming rework of the console core will
provide thread context for console drivers which require to sleep.

For now, restrict the room query which can sleep to tty writes which happen
from preemptible task context.

The usability for dmesg output is limited anyway because it's almost
guaranteed to drop the 'LF' which is submitted after the dmesg line because
the device supports only one transfer on flight. Same for any printk()
which is coming in before the previous transfer has been done.

This new restriction does not make it worse than before, but it makes the
condition correct under all circumstances.
