Very interesting!

I missed this completely.

I know for a fact that bus reset clears the Data Link Layer Active bit
as soon as link goes down. It gets set again following link up.

Presence detect depends on the HW implementation.

QDT root ports don't change presence detect for instance since nobody
actually removed the card.

If an implementation supports in-band presence detect, the answer is yes.
As soon as the link goes down, presence detect bit will get cleared until
recovery.

It sounds like we need to update your lock change with my proposal.

lock() in mask_irq() and unlock() in unmask_irq()
