Mani, can you please explain how my commit made the intel-gw driver
special? The intel driver actually fails the dw_pcie_host_init if the
link does not come up. That was my motivation behind adding the fail
logic in the core driver as well.

Johan, Mani
My apologies for adding this regression in some of the SOCs.
May I suggest to keep my patch and make the following change instead?
This shall keep the existing behavior as is, and save the boot time
for drivers that do not define the start_link()?
