It sounds like with (a), you could make this work without having a
Wil6110-specific quirk, i.e., if the Link Status says the link is
active, we assume a device is present.  That seems reasonable to me
and it sort of fits with these previous changes:

  385895fef6b5 ("PCI: pciehp: Prioritize data-link event over presence detect")
  e48f1b67f668 ("PCI: pciehp: Use link change notifications for hot-plug and removal")
