is there some time information available in a MI way while doing autoconf,
when interrupts are not yet enabled ?

Basically, I want to defer IDE devices probe to do it with interrupts enabled.
I can reset the IDE bus when the controller is probed, and
wait for it to complete in my deffered callback (hoping it has completed while
other devices are being probed). However, I need to know the time 
between when the reset is initiated, and the deffered config callback is

If this info isn't available, I can start the timeout when the callback is
called, but if we can shorten it by a few seconds it would be nice :)
