Hi sasha,
In this situation, the error_state is always pci_channel_io_normal.
The delay is necessary.

Refer to "627239-Intel® Ethernet Controller I225-MAC-Address-Passthrough-rev1.2"
section "3.5
  Timing Considerations":
"For hardware implementation,

when the operating system is already running, the MAC copy must happen not more than one

second after TBT link is established.
the I225 Windows driver prevents the operating

system from detecting the I225 for one second. This allows enough time for hardware to update the

MAC address."

Thanks sasha,
Aaron
