Thanks for the patch. This generally hasn't been an issue as drivers do
implement link_validate function. But it still is a bug in the code.

The link validation function does not change during the loop. How about
caching it locally and implementing a static nop variant you call in case
there's nothing to theck, so there's no need to check for entity->ops and
the entity->ops->link_validate separately on every iteration?
