Yes, you won't be surprised to learn that I don't like the similar
checks in dwc, altera, xilinx, and xilinx-nwl either :)  I raise this
issue every time I see it, but I can't remember if I've mentioned dwc
specifically.

We need to either eradicate this pattern of checking for link up, or
include a comment about why it is absolutely necessary.

I'm not convinced about this.  The issues you mention need to be
solved in a generic way, not a tegra-specific way.

We don't want to end up with code that silently avoids the config
access 99.99% of the time, but once in a blue moon, we lose the race
(the device stops responding after we've determined the link is up)
and the access causes a mysterious AER error that we have no way to
debug.
