Re: [PATCH V2] sdhci: always use max timeout for xfers

I think that always use max timeout for xfers is not bed..
But when i have sent the RFC patch, during suspend/resume is appeared some problem.
(when busy-waiting, occurred illegal sequence error is occurred..)
Anyone found same problem when suspend/resume?

So, i think that setting maximum timeout value is not good solution about every case.
