FWIW, this series is

Looking at the patches again today, I only spotted a minor cosmetic issue:

In patch [1/3] I would have preferred readout of the PCI_EXP_SLTCAP2
register (hunk #3) to be inserted a little further up in pcie_init(),
perhaps before reading the PCI_EXP_LNKCAP register. It just looks
a little out of place at the end of the function. I would have
grouped it together with the other quirks and feature checks further
up in the function and I probably would have amended the ctrl_info()
to print the status of the inband_presence_disabled flag.

In patch [3/3] the DMI check would then likewise have to be moved up
in the function.

Maybe Bjorn can make this change when applying, and if not, it's not
a big deal.
