We do have a bit of mess unfortunately. Error handling and hotplug drivers
do not play nicely with each other.

When hotplug driver observes a link down, we are not checking if the
link down happened because user really wanted to remove a card or
if it was because it was originated by an error handling service such

I'm thinking that we could potentially check if a hotplug event is pending
at the entrance of fatal error handling. If it is pending, we could poll until
the status bit clears. That should flush the link down event.

Even then, link down indication of hotplug seem to turn off slot power
and LED.

If AER/DPC service runs after the hotplug driver, link won't come back
up as the power to the slot is turned off.

I'd like to hear about Bjorn's opinion before we throw something else
into this problem.
