Subject[PATCH v3] add function spin_event_timeout()
Date
The macro spin_event_timeout() takes a condition and timeout value
(in microseconds) as parameters. It spins until either the condition is true
or the timeout expires. It returns zero if the timeout expires first, non-zero
otherwise.

This primary purpose of this macro is to poll on a hardware register until a
status bit changes. The timeout ensures that the loop still terminates if the
bit doesn't change as expected. This macro makes it easier for driver
developers to perform this kind of operation properly.

v3: eliminated secondary evaluation of condition, replaced jiffies with udelay

v2: added cpu_relax and time_before

+ * spin_event_timeout - spin until a condition gets true or a timeout elapses
+ * @condition: a C expression to evalate
+ * @timeout: timeout, in microseconds
+ *
+ * The process spins until the @condition evaluates to true (non-zero) or
+ * the @timeout elapses.
+ *
+ * This primary purpose of this macro is to poll on a hardware register
+ * until a status bit changes. The timeout ensures that the loop still
+ * terminates if the bit never changes.
+ *
+ * The return value is the number of microseconds left in the timeout, so if
+ * the return value is non-zero, then it means the condition is true.
+ *
+ * Short-circuit evaluation in the while-loop ensures that if the condition
+ * becomes true exactly when the timeout expires, non-zero will still be
+ * returned.
