Yue, Kevin: any comment on this?

I found that the issue is reproducible even without a PCIe switch,
depending on the single device I plug in this machine (an Intel SSD
works fine, while a Marvell Ethernet adapter never shows up) as the
LTSSM times out much earlier than it really should (HW timers running
too quickly). Applying this patch makes every single device I have
lying around work fine.

Thanks,

	M.
