CONFIG_PCIEASPM breaks PCIe on Marvell Armada 385 machine

on an Marvell Armada 385 based machine (Turris Omnia) with 4.9 the
ath10k driver fails to bind to the matching hardware if CONFIG_PCIEASPM
is enabled:

# dmesg | grep ath
[    7.207770] ath10k_pci 0000:02:00.0: Refused to change power state, currently in D3
[    7.237955] ath10k_pci 0000:02:00.0: failed to wake up device : -110
[    7.238146] ath10k_pci: probe of 0000:02:00.0 failed with error -110

if however PCIEASPM is off, the driver probes correctly and the ath10k
adapter works fine.

I wonder if someone has an idea what needs to be done to fix this
problem. (OK, I could disable PCIEASPM, but I'd like to have a solution
for a distribution kernel where I think PCIEASPM=y is sensible in

Best regards
