I probably have not wrote reply to that thread and only to Krzysztof on
IRC, but my "hack" really does not solve that race condition. And as you
wrote it only reduced occurrence on tested HW.

Krzysztof wrote that would look at this issue and try to solve it
properly. So I have not doing more investigation on that my "hack"
patch, race conditions are hard to catch and solve...
