Subject: [PATCH] nfc: nxp-nci: use msleep for long delays

ulseep_range() uses hrtimers and provides no advantage over msleep()
for larger delays. For this large delay msleep() is preferable.

Fixes: commit 6be88670fc59 ("NFC: nxp-nci_i2c: Add I2C support to NXP NCI driver")
Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <>
Problem was found by cocinelle script.

nxp_nci_i2c_write takes the negative return code as indicator that the
NFC device was probably in stand-by mode, the first transaction attempt
woke it up and that after 110ms latest it would be ready to receive.
Overrunning this time by a few milliseconds will not hurt though so
msleep() should be fine here.

Patch was compile tested with: x86_64_defconfig + CONFIG_NFC=m,

Patch is against 4.10-rc4 (localversion-next is next-20170120)
