That's an interesting idea. Can you expand on this a little more?
Why is it the responsibility of the port driver?

Do you think pci_enable_pcie_error_reporting() shouldn't be part of
the AER service because it updates the Device Control register, which
is in the PCIe Capability, not the AER Capability?

What about pci_aer_clear_device_status(), which clears Device Status,
which is also in the PCIe Capability?

If we thought we should enable error reporting *always*, regardless of
whether the AER service is enabled, this would make perfect sense to
me, and I might suggest doing it in an even more generic place like
pci_configure_device() or pci_init_capabilities().

But that doesn't seem like where you're headed. It seems like you
still only want error reporting enabled when CONFIG_PCIEAR=y. If
that's the case, it seems like doing it in portdrv only obfuscates the
connection with AER. When CONFIG_PCIEAER is unset, the portdrv code
*looks* like it's doing something but it's really not because of the
#ifdef magic.
