SubjectRe: [PATCH V5 3/3] PCI: Mask and unmask hotplug interrupts during reset
> what if we only have conditional enumeration ?  (leaving removing devices followed by SBR as is) ?

If we leave it as is, hotplug driver observes a link down interrupt as soon
as secondary bus reset is issued. Hotplug driver will try device removal while
AER driver is working on the currently observe FATAL error causing a race
condition. Hotplug driver wait for rescan lock to be obtained.

See this comment and the pseudo code below.

* pciehp has a 1:1 bus:slot relationship so we ultimately want a secondary
* bus reset of the bridge, but at the same time we want to ensure that it is
* not seen as a hot-unplug, followed by the hot-plug of the device. Thus,
* disable link state notification and presence detection change notification
* momentarily, if we see that they could interfere. Also, clear any spurious
* events after.
int pciehp_reset_slot(struct slot *slot, int probe)
<mask hotplug interrupts>
<issue secondary bus reset>
<unmask hotplug interrupts>

This patch is trying to mask the interrupt before secondary bus reset in AER
path not after.

Otherwise, hotplug driver will remove the devices as soon as it obtains the
rescan lock following AER recovery since hotplug interrupts will be pending.
