attached patch adds a little delay before usb-control message sending to 
avoid i2c timeouts (unwanted message log errors) seen many people.

Looks like gl861 usb-controller messes up and stops responding if i2c 
messages are send too fast. This happens especially with faster 
computers. First I tried to change usb_control_msg timeout from 2000 to 
4000 but it didn't help.

This bug is mentioned (at least) following mails:

Jonas Larsson and gingis could you test and report if it works. If still 
timeouts after the patch then try to add more delay [udelay(10)].
