The read *never* completes? That might be a bit problematic because
it implies that we may not be able to recover from PCIe errors. Most
controllers will timeout eventually, log an error, and either
fabricate some data (typically ~0) to complete the CPU's read or cause
some kind of abort or machine check.

Just asking in case there's some controller configuration that should
be tweaked.
