In cases such as xhci_abort_cmd_ring(), xhci_handshake() is called with
a spin lock held (and local interrupts disabled) with a huge 5 second
timeout. This can translates to 5 million calls to udelay(1). By its
very nature, udelay() is not meant to be precise, it only guarantees to
delay a minimum of 1 microsecond. Therefore the actual delay of
xhci_handshake() can be significantly longer. If the average udelay(1)
is greater than 2.2 us, the total time in xhci_handshake() - with
interrupts disabled can be > 11 seconds triggering the kernel's soft lockup
To avoid this, let's replace the open coded io polling loop with one from
iopoll.h that uses a loop timed with the more presumably reliable ktime

Looks sane to me, nice fixup.

Is this causing problems on older kernels/devices today such that we
should backport this?
