The main point of this series is to call the driver error handling
callbacks (error_detected(), mmio_enabled(), slot_reset(), etc.) when
DPC events occur. We've always called them for AER events, but prior
to this series, we didn't call them for DPC events.

That's a good thing -- we should treat DPC events as much like AER
events as possible.

This series does make it more obvious that there's still a big
difference between AER and DPC handling -- for DPC, we remove and
re-enumerate all the devices, but we don't for AER.

That difference has been there since the beginning of DPC, so it has
nothing to do with *this* series EXCEPT for the fact that it really
complicates the logic you're adding to reset_link() and
broadcast_error_message().

We ought to be able to simplify that somehow because the only real
difference between AER and DPC should be that DPC automatically
disables the link and AER does it in software.
