Let me explain what I guessed. You might be able to fill in the blanks
where I am completely off.

We do vfio initiated flr reset immediately following guest machine
shutdown. The card could be fully enabled and pushing traffic to the
system at this moment.

I don't know if vfio does any device disable or not.

FLR is supposed to reset the endpoint but endpoint doesn't recover per
your report.

Having vendor specific reset routines for PCIE endpoints defeats the
purpose of FLR.

Since the adapter is fully functional, i suggested turning off bus
master and memory enable bits to stop endpoint from sending packets.

But, this is not helping either.

Those sleep statements looked very fragile to be honest.

I was curious if there is something else that we could do for other endpoints.

No objections otherwise.
