Why not? I don't mean it has to be cra_write(), but isn't there some
way you can write that bit before we scan the root bus? It doesn't
make sense that we have to scan the bus before we can train the link.
We want to be able to tell the PCI core "all the device-specific root
complex initialization has been done, here are the config accessors
you need, please scan for devices." I want to keep device-specific
things like this quirk directly in the driver and out of the

You're right, and I don't like iproc_pcie_check_link() either, for the
The iproc_pcie_check_link() is a little better because it's called
But it would be a lot better if iproc_pcie_check_link() were done
first, before pci_create_root_bus(). Then it would be more like the
structure of other drivers, and we could use pci_scan_root_bus()
Comments, iproc folks?
