Actually taking the time to look at the code...

Can someone explain to me (I have a feeling I may just have forgotten this)
why we aren't using an interrupt here? It looks like a bus transaction triggered
read. So why not do a enable_irq followed by triggering the read and use a
waitqueue to wait for an interrupt handler to signal it is done?

Having found the datahsheeting lying around on the net I can't see why this
won't work and be somewhat cleaner than current polling approach.
