Subject[PATCH 0/3] PCI: pciehp: Do not turn off slot if presence comes up after link
In older PCIe specs, PDS (presence detect) would come up when the
"in-band" presence detect pin connected, and would be up before DLLLA
(link active).

In PCIe 4.0 (as an ECN) and in PCIe 5.0, there is a new bit to show if
in-band presence detection can be disabled for the slot, and another bit
that disables it--and a recommendation that it should be disabled if it
can be. In addition, certain OEMs disable in-band presence detection
without implementing these bits.

This means it is possible to get a "card present" interrupt after the
link is up and the driver is loaded. This causes an erroneous removal
of the device driver, followed by an immediate re-probing.

This patch set defines these new bits, uses them to disable in-band
presence detection if it can be, waits for PDS to go up if in-band
presence detection is disabled, and adds a DMI table that will let us
know if we should assume in-band presence is disabled on a system.

The first two patches in this set come from a patch set that was
submitted but not accepted many months ago by Alexandru Gagniuc [1].
The first is unmodified, the second has the commit message and timeout
