It is expected that in nearly all cases it will be much shorter than
10ms.  The longest expected (at 400kHz) is 1.3 ms and we should only
be probing down to 300, 200, 100 kHz if we are having trouble
communicating.  When running at a normal speed (50 MHz, 100 MHz, etc)
it should be much smaller and closer to 10 us or less.  We could still
try to sleep in some of these cases, but IMHO the extra code
complexity for something like this that should happen very
infrequently (only at bootup or if we decide to re-tune) is probably
not worth it.  Also note that at boot eMMC is (probably) on the
critical path, so there may be some boot speed benefits to continuing
as quickly as possible.
