Ok, we will wait for Thomas ACK/review.

I fully understand yours concerns. I wanted to solve it. Problem is that
I really do not know which timeout is there applicable. I read
information about PERST# more times but I was not able to clearly deduce
that minimal timeout/delay needed for this reset scenario.

So what I was able to do are just experiments. I found out what is the
minimal needed time to correctly initialize wifi cars which I used for
testing.

You can look into my previous email [1] where I wrote which timeouts are
used by which drivers. Basically every driver is using its own custom
timeout and this is something which should be fixed / improved. In my
opinion authors tested their own (wifi) cards and measured minimal
timeout needed for initializing them.

So somebody with deeper PCI knowledge should look at this PERST# problem
and try to address it.

After it happens I see there two scenarios:

1) Timeout according to specification/authority is lower than what we
currently use. In this case it would mean that we have buggy wifi cards
(and we already know that people reported issues with Compex cards) and
we would have to stay with higher timeout. Probably we can define common
macro with timeout value and use it.

2) Timeout according to specification/authority is bigger then what we
currently use. In this case there is no problem to increase it, card
would be just longer in reset state. What could be problematic for
somebody is that this increase boot / initialization time.
