tty->low_latency + irq context

From: Jiri Slaby

* tty_flip_buffer_push - terminal
* @tty: tty to push
* Queue a push of the terminal flip buffers to the line discipline. This
* function must not be called from IRQ context if tty->low_latency is set.

But some drivers (mxser, nozomi, hvsi...) sets low_latency to 1 in _open and
calls tty_flip_buffer_push in isr or in functions, which are called from isr.
Is the comment correct or the drivers?

Moreover, hvsi says:
tty->low_latency = 1; /* avoid throttle/tty_flip_buffer_push race */
