radioInterface: Clarify how underruns are handled driving a radioDevice

The underrun parameter in radioDevice's readSamples() is not a "Rx
Underrun" event, but rather it's used to retrieve a "Tx Underrun" which
on some SDRs (like USRP1) seems to be (so far) available only at
readSamples() times.

Thus, underrun parameter for both readSamples() and writeSamples() is
actually flagging the same event, and should be ORed in pushBuffer() as
it's already done in pullBuffer(). Otherwise if implementation is
setting the underrun pointer to false, it could erase the flag being
marked by the counterpart function before isUnderrun() is called (which
is the one responsible to clear the flag).
