Limit busywaiting only to the request currently being processed by the
GPU. If the request is not currently being processed by the GPU, there
is a very low likelihood of it being completed within the 2 microsecond
spin timeout and so we will just be wasting CPU cycles.

v2: Check for logical inversion when rebasing - we were incorrectly
checking for this request being active, and instead busywaiting for
when the GPU was not yet processing the request of interest.

v3: Try another colour for the seqno names.
v4: Another colour for the function names.
