Didn't we just have that discussion in another thread a few days
ago? I think that the pcie_has_flr was a mistake in retrospective but I
think the bool probe API was an even bigger mistake. The only use
of it is to hide the reset attribute in sysfs. I'd much rather always
have it and have it return EOPNOTSUPP if no reset method is supported.

I can send a patch for that if it sounds fine to you.
