Subject: [PATCH 3.14 53/94] iwlwifi: pcie: try to get ownership several times

3.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Emmanuel Grumbach <emmanuel.grumbach@...el.com>

commit 501fd9895c1d7d8161ed56698ae2fccb10ef14f5 upstream.

Some races with the hardware can happen when we take
ownership of the device. Don't give up after the first try.
