Subject: [UPDATE PATCH v2 3/6] ACPI/EC: Remove duplicated ec_wait_ibf0() waiter.

After we've added the first command byte write into advance_transaction(),
the IBF=0 waiter is duplicated with the command completion waiter
implemented in the ec_poll() because:
   If IBF=1 blocked the first command byte write invoked in the task
   context ec_poll(), it would be kicked off upon IBF=0 interrupt or timed
   out and retried again in the task context.
This patch removes this seperate and duplicate IBF=0 waiter, by doing so,
we can reduce the overall number of times to access the EC_SC(R) status
register.
