The idea here is to allow the remainder of the code to execute when
the condition succeeds _or_ times out.  If it times out, that is
not a failure - it merely means that the display has been blanked
and we're not seeing frame done interrupts anymore.

The code should not be checking the returned value at all - in fact
I have updates to this code which (in part) remove this, and fix a
glaring problem that the wait queue is never woken.

I wonder how many places you've made this same mistake... please
ensure that you review the code you're changing carefully.
