Have not seen it happen but if we have bogus hardware, we would rather
get an informative log from the reset controller than a not so
informative one from the consumer drivers about e.g.: SATA or PCIe link
down (which could be for various other reasons). If you want this
demoted to a debug print, let me know.

The bit is not self clearing, but it can be cleared when the
reset/calibration procedure is successfully finished, so this seems to
do what it is intended for, in that, if you read the bit as 1, XOR would
let you clear it. If you read it as 0, XOR would leave it cleared.

Would you want a comment above to explain that?

This should be doable, let me try to update the drivers accordingly. It
sounds a bit silly to have to have kind of knowledge pushed down to the
consumer drivers though...
