e1000e: delay second read of PHY_STATUS register on failure of first read
Bruce Allan [Wed, 1 Jul 2009 13:28:50 +0000 (13:28 +0000)]
Some PHYs may require two reads of the PHY_STATUS register to determine the
link status.  If the PHY is being accessed by another thread it is possible
the first read could timeout and fail.  In this case, put a delay in so
the second read will pick up the correct link status.
