The Designware databook claims that cmd11 should be finished in 2ms,
but my testing showed that not to be the case in some situations.
I've seen cmd11 timeouts of up to 130ms (!) during reboot tests.
Let's bump the timeout way up so that we're absolutely sure.  CMD11 is
only sent during card insertion, so this extra timeout shouldn't be
