Just checked with the RTL engineer, even if GCTL[7:6] is set to 0, 
internally it can still run with suspend clock during P3.

In any case, increasing the timeout should be fine with me. It maybe 
difficult to determine the max timeout base on the slowest clock rate 
and number of cycles. Different controller and controller versions 
behave differently and may have different number of clock cycles to 
complete a command.

The RTL engineer recommended timeout to be at least 1ms (which maybe 
more than the polling rate of this patch). I'm fine with either the rate 
provided by this tested patch or higher.
