I determined empirically that link training takes around
10-15 ms. Though I suppose this might depend on the
specific PCIe board? (I'm only considering x1 link.)

So I added an msleep(20); in the probe function, and in
the config_read callback, I check the link status on the
first read to the device.

Should I msleep(40) to be safe?

Regards.
