I think this callback opens up a can of worms where drivers can ad-hoc
kill a number what otherwise can be indicators of problems. But I don't
have to like it to review it :).

I don't think you want to change pcie_report_downtraining(). You're
advertising to "report" something, by nomenclature, but then go around
and also call a notification callback. This is also used during probe,
and you've now just killed your chance to notice you've booted with a
degraded link.
If what you want to do is silence the bandwidth notification, you want
to modify the threaded interrupt that calls this.

Can we write this such that there is a single lock()/unlock() pair?
