Keep in mind that our Brcm PCIe HW signals a CPU abort on a PCIe
completion timeout.  Other PCIe HW just returns 0xffffffff.

I've been maintaining this driver for over eight years or so and we've
done fine with the HW default completion timeout value.
Only recently has a major customer requested that this timeout value
be changed, and their reason was so they could
avoid a CPU abort when using L1SS.

Now we could set this value to a big number for all cases and not
require "brcm,completion-timeout-us".  I cannot see any
downsides, other than another customer coming along asking us to
double the default or lessen it.

But I'm certainly willing to do that -- would that  be acceptable?
