Hello! I copied this "comment" from other place in pci-aardvark.c where
that timeout 100ms is already applied. Timeout with explanation comment
was introduced in following commit:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=f4c7d053d7f7

Here are links to discussions about that patch:
