[rt2x00-users] [PATCH] Fix 'Error - MCU request failed' during initialization

Hello!

I post my humble attempt to get rid of notorious Error - MCU request
failed ;)

I tried to fully mimic legacy driver, which should explain some obscure
moves like putting device to sleep and waking it up immediately.

Also during the work I earned some understanding of MCU requests and
found some info on arguments. Would you like me to share it or perhaps
add some documentation to header files?

The rt2800pci_set_state function got somehow lost during development
and I decided not to recreate it since it feels a little confusing to
me. Although note that behaviour for STATE_DEEP_SLEEP and STATE_STANDBY
will change. Previously transitions to those states were forwarded to
rt2800pci_set_state and ignored there. Now they will be treated the
same as STATE_SLEEP. In practice though, it shouldn't change behaviour
since mentioned states are not used in rt2800.

I have tested this on my only PCI device (rt: 2860, rf: 0001, rev:
0102). Please post your comments and possibly give it more testing on
your devices.

Bring MCU operations during device initialization to sync with legacy
driver.

This should fix following error:
phy0 -> rt2800pci_mcu_status: Error - MCU request failed, no response
from hardware
