Unfortunately, our current firmwares are not doing this, and so this
patch is breaking the IPC functionality in our platform drivers. We do
wait for the vdev status before actually attempting any Tx from the
remote side.

Our newer platforms will definitely be leveraging this before the vring
inits to account for early-boot of rprocs in bootloaders and
late-attach/ipc-only modes in kernel.
