Subject: [PATCH 1/1] drivers/usb/host/pci-quirks.c: wait for EHCI handoff far too long in quirk_usb_disable_ehci()

This patch fixes a very noticeable bootup delay on some
systems (in my particular case, an HP dv5178us). The
problem is caused by a buggy BIOS which doesn't properly
announce that the handoff was completed.

The delay in the current version of pci-quirks.c is 5 seconds,
which I've cut down to 0.5 seconds.
