After checking PCIe spec, I found that the 100ms here has its standard origin :)

In PCI Express Base Specification Revision 2.0:

Section 6.6.1 Conventional Reset

To allow components to perform internal initialization, system
software must wait for at least
100 ms from the end of a Conventional Reset of one or more devices
before it is permitted to
issue Configuration Requests to those devices

But I think we should move the 100ms delay here to PCIe bus code or
PCIe/ACPI code, because that is needed by all PCIe devices for D3cold
