* snd_fw_transaction - send a request and wait for its completion
* @unit: the driver's unit on the target device
* @tcode: the transaction code
* @offset: the address in the target's address space
* @buffer: input/output data
* @length: length of @buffer
* Submits an asynchronous request to the target device, and waits for the
* response. The node ID and the current generation are derived from @unit.
* On a bus reset or an error, the transaction is retried a few times.
* Returns zero on success, or a negative error code.
