So the description says we have to wait 400ms before attempting a

What does this mean?

...but what we actually do is try to read up to 400 times starting well
before that 400ms is up.  This directly contradicts what the commit
message said we needed, may take a lot longer if the chip misbehaves on
the I2C bus while it's not ready (which wouldn't be that much of a
surprise), might lead to us reporting before the chip is really stable
(if the read happens to work while the chip isn't yet stable) and could
cause lots of noise on the console if the I2C controller gets upset.
What are we actually waiting for here?

If we really need 400ms of dead reckoning time (which is a lot for a
modern chip, that feels more like a VMID ramp) then it's going to be
safer to just do that.
