* [PATCH] Input: serio - add writing multiple bytes at once

The current version only supports forwarding a single byte to the tty
layer.

This patch adds serio_write_length() to allow a serport driver writing
multiple bytes at once. The patch also includes a fallback to
serio_write_length() when a driver did not register a single byte function.

Without users I do not see point for this API.

Thanks.

Here is an incomplete list of drivers calling serio_write() in a loop:

- drivers/media/usb/rainshadow-cec/rainshadow-cec.c
- drivers/input/serio/serio_raw.c
- drivers/input/touchscreen/elo.c

I can simplify these drivers by using serio_write_length() if you want 
to have some users for the new API.

Best regards
- David
