    Subject[PATCH] intel8x0m: schedule timeout before warm reset check
    At every resume a laptop I use prints this message (at KERN_ERR level):
    ALSA sound/pci/intel8x0m.c:904: AC'97 warm reset still in progress?

    The thing to note here is that 0x2 corresponds to ICH_AC97COLD. Ie, what
    seems to be happening is that the register involved indicated a warm
    reset for some time (as the ICH_AC97WARM bit was set) but by the time
    the warning is printed, and that same register is checked again, that
    bit is already cleared and only the ICH_AC97COLD bit is still set.

    It turns out a warm reset needs some time to settle, but it is currently
    checked right away. The test therefore fails the first time it is done
    and schedule_timeout_uninterruptible() will be called. Once we return
    from that jiffies is already (far) past end_time on this laptop, so we
    exit the loop, print a warning, and exit the function while the warm
    reset actually succeeded.

    One way to fix this is to call schedule_timeout_uninterruptible() at the
    start of the loop. (This might punish the "finish cold reset" case, but
    on this laptop such a cold reset apparently never happens, so I can't
    say for sure.)

    While we're at it drop the extra single tick from end_time, as it looks
    rather silly.

    The question I asked in the previous message ("snd_intel8x0m: error
    message because return value is unused?") made little sense. I probably
    got quite confused by my own efforts to debug this.
