If link training fails, then we need to fallback to lower
link rate first and if link training fails at RBR, then
fallback to lower lane count.
This function finds the next lower link rate/lane count
value after link training failure.

v4:
* Remove the redundant variable link_train_failed
v3:
* Remove fallback_link_rate_index variable, just obtain
that using the helper intel_dp_link_rate_index (Jani Nikula)
v2:
Squash the patch that returns the link rate index (Jani Nikula)

So you first try lower and lower link rates, until you're at the
lowest...

...and then go to highest rate, double lane count, and go back back to
reducing link rate. Rinse and repeat.

Problem is, lane_count will always be > 1, and you'll keep doubling lane
count without bounds if link training persistently fails, and I don't
think you'll reach the below else branch.

I regret that I haven't caught all of these issues all at once; it is in
part testament to the fact that the state machine here is not easy to
follow.

Yes so first it tries to lower the link rate until it goes to the lowes i.e RBR.
All this link rate reduction happens with lane count set to maximum.

So after link rate reaches RBR, it checks if lane count is > 1 and if it is then
it jumps the link rate back to highest supported and reduces the link rate from 
4 to 2 to 1.

So since I am reducing the lane count in each iteration, lane_count >> 1, at some point
it will go to 0 and that point it will exit with DRM_ERROR that link train failed
because at thatpoint we have exhausted trying all the link raterate and lane count
combinations. 
I am never doubling the link rate for it to reach out of bounds, infact I am reducing
the link rate to half each time (right shifting lane count) so at some point lane count will
fall to less than 0 when it will fall into the last else part.

The only problem i found is that I am setting lane count to max lane count which is wrong
in each iteration it should be set to lane count being passed in and it should start from that value and fallback.
So for Ex: If the first modeset is trying to train link at 2.7 and 4 lanes and link training fails,
Iteration 1 : 1.62 and 4 if this fails
Iteration 2: max link rate 5.4 and 2 (reduced lane count is halved)
Iteration 3: 2.7 and 2
Iteration 4: 1.62 and 2
Iteration 5: 5.4 and 1
iteration 6: 2.7 and 1
Iteration 7: 1.62 and 1
If this fails then it will return an error that Link training is failed.
