OK, we will reword the commit message as  "configure controller to handle
ZRX-DC compliant PHYs"

Yes, we are talking about Link power states. We rephrase the commit
description to make it more clear.

According to SNPS DesignWare data-book, the link will transition into
recovery state every 100ms, which means that yes, 100 times in 10 seconds.
But what we are trying to say here is that if the PHY is ZRX-DC compliant,
then the controller does not need to do this and we can thus save power
consumption.

As per the DesignWare data-book, the controller keeps this bit set to '1' by
default ("This bit enables a 100ms timer which can trigger exit from L1.")
and we are trying to reset this bit to '0' in order to not perform the
constant recovery and hence save power.

Do you mean why this property is part of PHY node instead of DesignWare
controller?

I don't know if there is any separate ZRX-DC specification exists which can
be pointed out here, but we have implementation note in PCIe specification
Rev 4.0 which says as:
"Ports that meet the ZRX-DC specification for 2.5 GT/s while in the L1.Idle
state and are therefore not required to implement the 100 ms timeout and
transition to Recovery should avoid implementing it, since it will reduce
the power savings expected from the L1 state." 

We have captured same in cover-letter of this patch series.

No, we didn't follow existing style, we will update this in next version.

Thanks for review.
