Two things look really bad about this to me:

1) Any value you choose is arbitrary. If some new network configuration daemon
is slower, you will have to change this value again.

This is _NOT_ sustainable in the long term.

2) It is completely unclear to me why this driver needs to delay at all or
wait for anything. I see no other driver having to deal with this issue.

Until you address both of these points I am not going to apply this patch.
