 We've noted a few times recently that libertas on XO-1.5 resets the device
 (often multiple times) during init due to command 0x28 timing out.

 This is because lbs_setup_firmware() calls lbs_set_mac_control(), which
 submits an asynchronous command and doesn't wait for its completion.

 Since the powerup routine can therefore complete before
 lbs_set_mac_control() finishes, we end up powering down the device too
 early and the mac control command times out.

 lbs_set_mac_control() could be made synchronous to fix this.
