mm, that is true. There were definitely interrupts getting dropped though with
this patch, although it was rather rare. The other thing too (and this was a
lot easier to reproduce) was that when we do a modeset that lowers the link
rate:

 * check modeset
 * commit disables so we can reprogram the vcpi (puts sink into D3)
 * commit enables
    * actually send request to put sink into D0
    * Go to start link training...
    * *TIMEOUT on response from hub*
    * continue modeset...
 * commit finishes
 * short period of time after the commit finishes, we receive the response
   from the hub where we tried to start link training

This being said: I think it may actually be a good idea for us to consider
waiting for the hub anyway when we're turning it on like we do with SST, since
we could be waking it up from a D3 state we didn't set ourselves anyway, but
either way I think since we can at least benefit from not having to deal with
the wakeup time at all in modesets like this (and it's not really problematic
to other hubs), we probably should do that as well with or without a busy
wait.
