You permanently repeat that "wait_for_cmd_done falsely gives the impression
that the routine waits for command completion".
I don't understand your point.
It waits for the chip to decode the command and be ready to accept new one.
Linux driver does the wait as any other driver (Intel, BSD).
If you think that something is done wrong, could you point it out?
I definitely don't believe that arbitrary delays inserted in different places
in the driver fix any problem. Any delay must be properly justified by the
statements from documentation and/or examples from other existing drivers.
