Subject: [PATCH v7 0/2] PCI: cadence: Retrain Link to work around Gen2

Cadence controller will not initiate autonomous speed change if strapped
as Gen2. The Retrain Link bit is set as quirk to enable this speed change.
Adding a quirk flag for defective IP. In future IP revisions this will not
be applicable.

  compilation error. No changes in code. Separate patch for this.
