I think Bjorn mentioned this a million times already, eg:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20190411201535.GS256045@google.com/

this is racy and gives a false sense of robustness. We have code in the
kernel that checks the link but adding more seems silly to me, so I am
inclined to drop this patch.
