Subject[patch 15/60] forcedeth boot delay fix
2.6.23-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Ayaz Abdulla <aabdulla@nvidia.com>

patch 9e555930bd873d238f5f7b9d76d3bf31e6e3ce93 in mainline.

Fix a long boot delay in the forcedeth driver. During initialization, the
timeout for the handshake between mgmt unit and driver can be very long.
The patch reduces the timeout by eliminating a extra loop around the
timeout logic.
