This is called for every PCIe device right? Won't there be a duplicated print in case a device loads with lower PCIe bandwidth than needed?

Alex, can you comment on this please?

Of course I can.

There's one print at probe() time, which happens if bandwidth < max. I would think that's fine. There is a way to duplicate it, and that is if the driver also calls print_link_status(). A few driver maintainers who call it have indicated they'd be fine with removing it from the driver, and leaving it in the core PCI.

We would be fine with that as well. Please include the removal in your patches.

Should the device come back at low speed, go away, then come back at full speed we'd still only see one print from the first probe. Again, if driver doesn't also call the function.
There's the corner case where the device come up at < max, goes away, then comes back faster, but still < max. There will be two prints, but they won't be true duplicates -- each one will indicate different BW.

This is fine.
