Subject: [PATCH RFC] staging: wilc1000: give usleep_range a range

usleep_range() is called in non-atomic context so there is little point
in setting min==max the jitter of hrtimer is determined by interruptions
anyway. usleep_range can only perform the intended coalescence if some
room for placing the hrtimer is provided. Given the range of milliseconds
the delay will be anything from 2 to a few anyway - so make it 2-5 ms.

Problem located with an experimental coccinelle script
./drivers/staging/wilc1000/wilc_wlan.c:411:4-16: WARNING: inefficient usleep_range with range 0 (min==max)
./drivers/staging/wilc1000/wilc_wlan.c:426:4-16: WARNING: inefficient usleep_range with range 0 (min==max)

Someone that knows the motivation for setting the time to 2 millisecond
might need to check if the 2 milliseconds where seen as tollerable max or
min - I'm assuming it was the min so extending.

Patch was compile tested with: x86_64_defconfig + Staging=y,
WILC1000_SDIO=m, WILC1000_SPI=m, WILC1000=m

Patch is against 5.1-rc3 (localversion-next is -next-20190405)
