moving from 30 to 0 is a bit alarming... what does the datasheet
Sometimes delays are implicit in the system where you are testing
the driver, so that without any msleep it might work in your
system but it might not on others.

I agree though that it's not nice to wait twice here (even though
as Dmitry says it doesn't hurt so much). Wouldn't it make more
sense to remove this msleep instead?

... you do not need to add an extra sleep here.
