mhm- that is the big problem it causes, at least with this patchset. I've been
considering maybe looking into probing downstream sinks with remote dpcd reads
to see their link training status, as I think that might actually be the real
reason for why there's this weird difference between the channel eq status in
the esi and the actual link training status of the hub in the dpcd registers
that are shared with SST. but that's for a later date :)
