As the caller of NCR5380_poll_politely() passes a timeout value in jiffies,
calculations may become simpler if you store the number of accesses per jiffy
instead of per ms.

Unlike the historical calibrating-delay-loop code, you don't wait for a jiffy
change before starting the calibration. At first I thought that was OK, but on
some platforms, HZ can be as low as 24, which means the result can vary by 33%
(based on 100 ms -> 3 jiffies).

The same change is made to atari_NCR5380.c.
I guess you plan to deduplicate this code when merging the drivers, i.e.
after this series?

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

Geert
