50ms (from what information I've been able to gleen; it might be
faster). Since I'm already polling the controller at 100ms, a 50ms
sleep in the poll routine would pretty much completely consume the
workqueue if 2 or more wii extension devices were attached to the
system. Voluntarily giving it up is the right thing to do.

That said, the problem is moot since I've modified the read state to
setup the next transfer immediately after reading the data. :-)

Revised patch posted shortly...
