Subject[PATCH 35/71] ncr5380: Dont wait for BUS FREE after disconnect
When there is a queued command and no connected command, NCR5380_select()
is called and arbitration begins. The chip waits for BUS FREE once the
MR_ARBITRATE bit in the mode register is enabled. That means there is
no need to wait for BUS FREE after disconnecting.

There is presently no polling for BUS FREE after sending an ABORT or
other message that might lead to disconnection. It only happens after
COMMAND COMPLETE or DISCONNECT messages, which seems inconsistent.
Remove the polling for !BSY in the COMMAND COMPLETE and DISCONNECT
cases.

BTW, the comments say "avoid nasty timeouts" and perhaps BUS FREE polling
was somehow helpful back in Linux v0.99.14u, when it was introduced.
The relevant timeout is presently 1 second (for bus arbitration).
