Do you mean to remove device physically at runtime? I was told that our
board would crash or issue reset. Removing device from mini PCIe slot
without power off is not supported.

Anyway, currently we are trying to read from device registers even when
no device is connected. So when advk_pcie_link_up() returns true and
after that device is not connected (somehow board and kernel would be
still alive) I guess that it would behave as without applying this
patch. So kernel starts reading from register and would wait until
timeout expires. As device is not connected there would be no answer,
so kernel print error message to dmesg (same as in commit message) and
returns error that read failed.
