Subject: [PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 48/80] can: kvaser_usb: Retry the first bulk transfer on -ETIMEDOUT

3.13.11-ckt17 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Ahmed S. Darwish" <ahmed.darwish@...eo.com>

commit 14c10c2a1dd8eb8e00b750b521753260befa2789 upstream.

On some x86 laptops, plugging a Kvaser device again after an
unplug makes the firmware always ignore the very first command.
For such a case, provide some room for retries instead of
completely exiting the driver init code.
