MIPS: Octeon: False positive timeout
If we reach the test just below the loop with a `timeout' value of 0, this does not mean that the timeout caused the loop to end, but rather the `smi_rd.s.pending', in the last iteration. If timeout caused the loop to end, then `timeout' is -1, not 0. Since this can occur only in the last iteration, it is not very likely to be a problem. By changing the post- to prefix decrement we ensure that a timeout of 0 does mean it timed out.
