Please consider updating to the following patch.

Description: Multiple schedule_timeout() related fixes. Generally uses msleep()
to guarantee the task delays as expected. In one place, this allowed for the
deletion of a variable. In a few places, I reverted back to using
TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE, because the code makes little sense otherwise. In these
places, the units of the timeout variable has been changed from jiffies to
msecs. As far as I can see, this driver is still not fixed, as there is no
response to the signal which may have interrupted the sleep. But this patch
at least brings it closer.
