I see. I think you are talking about aer_firmware_first, right?

aer_set_firmware_first() and pcie_aer_get_firmware_first() seem to do the right
thing.

aer_firmware_first is probably getting set because events are all routed to a
single root port and aer_acpi_firmware_first() is used to decide whether AER
should be initialized or not.

I think I understand what is going on now.

Still, breaking existing systems that rely on HEST table is not cool.
I'd rather have users specify "pcie_ports=native" to skip FF rather than
having broken systems by default to be honest.
