I think this patch is definitely a good idea.

Alongside this (whether you want to include it in your patch or not, Bjorn),
Sam Bobroff should replace myself as maintainer. He's been very active in fixing,
reworking and reviewing in EEH land and will probably do a better job of keeping
his finger on the pulse of the generic PCI error handling code than I did.
