Hi Kurt

I wonder if it would be possible to add a readx_poll_timeout() which
passes two parameters to op()?

I keep seeing this basic problem in various drivers, and try to point
people towards readx_poll_timeout(), but it is not the best of fit.

Otherwise, could you add a axienet_ior_read_mcr(lp), and use
readx_poll_timeout() as is?
