Yes.

There are customers who use this driver with PCI Link setup done in the 
boot loader. This property tells the driver to bypass Link setup 
procedure in that case. Is this undesirable and if so. how other 
platforms handle it? Check first if link is trained or start the link 
setup procedure? Let me know. If this is fine, please provide your Ack.

Thanks.
