!!ready provided is in order to let blocking/non-blocking case could
share same code path. And readl_poll_timeout_atomic only handles
blocking case.

It is good, I will choose the proper timeout and remove the log in the
next one.

Maybe i didn't get your points exactly. Adding some explanation about
thoughts here.

"return retval || !wait ? retval : -EIO;" I use can also help handling
the both cases in one line which i think is elegant enough. 

And retval is accumulated with each round if some data's existing in
hardware, so we don't return the value from mtk_rng_wait_ready().
