Improve the GEM loader reliability with a pre-request

Laurent Petre requested to merge bugfix/gem-loader into develop


Title says it all. More details in the commit message:

It was shown that for yet undetermined reasons, the first bitstream sent
by the GEM loader IP core can be corrupted. This commit adds an additional
bitstream request before triggering any hard reset trying to improve the
reliability of the GEM loader.
