Maybe to clarify: This is only affects asynchronous accesses with
asynchronous accesses without WAIT pin monitoring were never affected to
begin with and are not affected by this change.

I don't have an off-hand test case and seeing as the current
implementation is faulty, it's probable nobody actively uses this
feature. Cf. OMAP35xx TRM (SPRUF98X) pp. 1103. Basically,
WAITMONITORINGTIME extends the number of cycles from the end of WAIT
asserted to when the data is provided/sampled and the read/write access
(should) take place. While this behavior is esoteric, it's not a reason
not to fix this oversight.
