flashgchar() is never called in atomic context.

flashgchar() is only called by flashcard().
flashcard() calls copy_from_user() and kmalloc(GFP_KERNEL), which 
indicates this function is not called in atomic context.

Despite never getting called from atomic context, flashgchar()
calls mdelay() to busily wait.
This is not necessary and can be replaced with usleep_range() to
avoid busy waiting.

This is found by a static analysis tool named DCNS written by myself.
And I also manually check it.
