That feels very "arbitrary", why do we "know" it will take at most 3
seconds? I guess there's not much else we can do here except maybe
somehow watch sysfs until the device is really gone?

Yeah. Number 3 is somewhat arbitrary. It helps the host process the
detach request from the client and update the sysfs. Detach returns
as soon as client side is done, and the test is running the next
command on the host side. If I were run these commands manually, it
gives enough settling time. I am looking for a quick way to allow
settling time in this automated test.
