RE: Hari and train-up sequences
I need some clarification here. Are you proposing a link initialization for
the Hari? If so, are you also proposing a link initialization for the local
device to link partner connection? If you're proposing both, then are you
proposing to have 3 stages of link initialization? If so, I believe that
this may add more complexity than we need to deal with.

That's right. The deskew logic can made easier. If it looks for
Link codes which come every N idles, where N = 4 for example,
the window is bigger than deskewing off of idles. And there is a
beginning and end to the deskew period.
