I am not sure why you consider the wait unnecessary and silly. Notice
the response code AP_RESPONSE_OTHERWISE_CHANGED above which means that
the AP queue is already disabled for interrupts or the enablement
process has not yet completed. Shouldn't we wait for the IRQ to clear
in this case? I do agree that there is no need to wait if the
response code is 0.
