The issue has been there since PCIe support was added for this platform
and does not cause any issues until the USB and UFS controllers are
runtime suspended.

When that happens nothing is currently making sure that we have enough
power to run PCIe at gen3 speeds, something which can potentially result
in system instability (e.g. resets).

We'd have a few more weeks where users enabling runtime PM for USB on
the X13s could hit this before we can get the fix backported to stable.

I could have put some more details in the commit message for the DT
patch, but I did not think that amending the PCIe binding would be
controversial. (I guess we can also take the DT fix without waiting for
the binding update as it has been acked by a DT maintainer even if that
would result in some DT checker warnings until things are aligned

Let me know what you decide regarding getting the whole series into 6.8,
and then I can spend some more time on rewording, splitting and rebasing
this series if needed.
