... and that has, at some point since 2.6.26 or so, become a
problem that caused oopsing.

Change the u_serial.c code so that this newish tty behavior
stops causing problems: don't set low_latency.

But also try and sort through any consequences of that, and
don't forget to update the comments which talk about how the
low_latency setting is affecting code flow.
