Subject: [PATCH 6/7] n_tty: ->ops->write: Cut core logic out to a separate function

To simplify internal re-use of the line discipline's write method,
we isolate the work it does to its own function.

Since in-kernel callers might not refer to the tty through a file,
the struct file* argument might make no sense, so we also stop
tty_io_nonblock() from dereferencing file too early, allowing
to pass NULL as the referring file here.
