bnxt_en: Fix typo in firmware message timeout logic. The logic that polls for the firmware message response uses a shorter sleep interval for the first few passes. But there was a typo so it was using the wrong counter (larger counter) for these short sleep passes. The result is a slightly shorter timeout period for these firmware messages than intended. Fix it by using the proper counter. Fixes: 9751e8e71487 ("bnxt_en: reduce timeout on initial HWRM calls") Signed-off-by: Michael Chan <[email protected]> Signed-off-by: David S.
