Subject[PATCH] sc16is7xx: Drop bogus use of IRQF_ONESHOT
The use of IRQF_ONESHOT when registering an interrupt handler with
request_irq() is non-sensical.

Not only that, it also prevents the handler from being threaded when it
otherwise should be w/ IRQ_FORCED_THREADING is enabled. This causes the
following deadlock observed by Sean Nyekjaer on -rt:

Internal error: Oops - BUG: 0 [#1] PREEMPT SMP ARM
rt_spin_lock_slowlock from queue_kthread_work
queue_kthread_work from sc16is7xx_irq
