[PATCH] Revert "spi: omap2-mcspi: Switch to readl_poll_timeout()"

This reverts commit 13d515c796adc49a49b0cd2212ccd7f43a37fc5a.

The amount of time spent polling for the MCSPI_CHSTAT bits to be set on
AM335x-icev2 platform is less than 1us (about 0.6us) in most cases, with
or without using DMA. So, in most cases the function need not sleep.
Also, setting the sleep_usecs to zero would not be optimal here because
ktime_add_us() used in readl_poll_timeout() is slower compared to the
direct addition used after the revert. So, it is sub-optimal to use
readl_poll_timeout in this case.

When DMA is not enabled, this revert results in an increase of about 27%
in throughput and decrease of about 20% in CPU usage. However, the CPU
usage and throughput are almost the same when used with DMA.

Therefore, fix this by reverting the commit which switched to using
