The machine completed 200 s3 cycles with the patch reverted without long
delays, hangs, or any atombios error messages. Without reverting it
doesn't get through many at all before experiencing the errors and long
delays or hangs.

I added a printout of the connector status resulting from the logic that
was changed by f8d0edd. With the logic prior to this commit it
consistently returns the status as disconnected, which is correct as I
have nothing connected. But with the improved logic the status is
sometimes reported as connected, and these coincide with the atombios
