Subject[PATCH 4/6] serial: make 8250 timeout use the specified IRQ handler
The current 8250 timeout code duplicates the code path in
serial8250_default_handle_irq and then serial8250_handle_irq
i.e. reading iir, check for IIR_NO_INT, and then calling

So the immediate thought is to replace the duplicated code
with a call to serial8250_default_handle_irq.

But this highlights a problem. We let 8250 driver variants
use their own IRQ handler via specifying their own custom
->handle_irq, but in the event of a timeout, we ignore their
handler and implicitly run serial8250_default_handle_irq instead.

So, go through the struct to get ->handle_irq and call that,
which for most will still be serial8250_default_handle_irq.
