Wouldn't it interpret -ERESTARTSYS as *no timeout*?

Anyway, the plain !0 comparison for me clearly shows that
'interruptible' was more copy&pasted then really planned or supported.
If it was, it would need to cancel something. Also, 20ms is pretty hard
to cancel for a user ;) Given all that and the troubles we had with
'interruptible' in the I2C subsystem, I'd much vote for dropping
interruptible here.

Rest looks good, thanks!
