Subject[char-misc-next] mei: don't update offset in write
Date
From: Alexander Usyskin <alexander.usyskin@intel.com>

MEI enables writes of complete messages only
while read can be performed in parts, hence
write should not update the file offset to
not break interleaving partial reads with writes.
