iwlwifi: revert uCode Alive notification with timeout



commit "iwlwifi: uCode Alive notification with timeout" introduced a more
reliable mechanism for ucode loading. Unfortunately we hit a problem with
it frequently enough to make a 4965 unusable. The problem can be seen in
debug log below. What this code attempts is to set runtime ucode up to
load, start a timer to wait for the alive response from runtime ucode, and
if it times out it tries again. As can be seen below we receive the alive
response and wake the waiting task _before_ the tasks starts waiting. The
task thus times out as the alive response is not received while it is
waiting for it and it restarts the device. This starts the cycle all over
again.
