It's causing endless amounts of trouble by hiding pretty serious bugs
where we wait for a few msecs, but accidentally while holding a
spinlock (sometimes even an irqsafe one).

And the only reason for this was to make the mode for the panic
handler work somewhat. But that _really_ needs to be done at a higher
level, since all our sideband mutexes and other stuff isn't covered
with this either.

And the final straw: At least with the current drm infrastructure
we've given up on special panic handlers a while ago:

    drm/fb: drop panic handling

So let's just rip this out.
