Subject: [PATCH 3.13 231/259] slcan: Port write_wakeup deadlock fix from slip

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tyler Hall <tylerwhall@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit a8e83b17536aad603fbeae4c460f2da0ee9fe6ed ]

The commit "slip: Fix deadlock in write_wakeup" fixes a deadlock caused
by a change made in both slcan and slip. This is a direct port of that
fix.
