SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 75/71] ncr5380: Remove FLAG_DTC3181E

The first test for ICR_ARBITRATION_LOST happens after the required
arbitration delay, 2.4 us. The second test for ICR_ARBITRATION_LOST
happens after ICR_ASSERT_SEL.

This second test seems to be pointless. It comes from the flow chart in
the NCR datasheet (see download link in patch 17). The spec does not
require this test but some 5380 devices may do. Who knows? It's almost
impossible to be sure, because it would mean losing a race with another
bus device right at the end of the arbitration delay (and we extend that
delay to 3 us anyway).

Certainly one can find other datasheets with sample code and flow charts
that don't do this second check. The reason is that ICR_ARBITRATION_LOST
can be triggered when SEL is asserted by any device, so it may be
triggered after we've won arbitration (because we then set ICR_ASSERT_SEL
ourselves in order to enter selection phase).

They do different things because the second exit has to cleanup after the
ICR write.

I agree that it would be nice to remove the DTC3181E special case. It
would mean replacing patch 49.

The patch below is another version of your patch 75. It really needs to be
tested on all kinds of 5380 device, and if possible with a contested bus
(which would imply diconnection privileges, for which the driver still
requires that the chip has a working irq).
