readl_poll_timeout() doesn't really work here as it might sleep.

iopoll.h:

/**
  * readx_poll_timeout - Periodically poll an address until a condition is met or a timeout occurs
  *
...                                                                                                              
  * Returns 0 on success and -ETIMEDOUT upon a timeout. In either
  * case, the last read value at @addr is stored in @val. Must not
  * be called from atomic context if sleep_us or timeout_us are used.
