Subject[PATCH] block/ps3: Fix slow VRAM IO

From: Hideyuki Sasaki <Hideyuki_Sasaki@hq.scei.sony.co.jp>

The current PS3 VRAM driver uses msleep() to wait for completion
of RSX DMA transfers between system memory and VRAM. Depending
on the system timing, the processing delay and overhead of this
msleep() call can significantly impact VRAM driver IO.

To avoid the condition, add a short duration (200 usec max)
udelay() polling loop before entering the msleep() polling
loop.
