I don't know.  When the link detection code was written it was tested
and it worked here.  Except when the link really is not connected I
have not seen code like that fail forever.

Looking at the code it is should work.  I just stripped down the
appropriate driver.  I do admit I have not tested 5.2 yet.  But
I don't see why anything would have broken.

Hmm.  I have once or twice seen the problem of fetching invariants of
the chip.  But something is noticeably different from the tree I have
because I do not have an line that will print err=-1 in the tree I am
looking at.
