So this doesn't happen if you revert c5eb1190074c?

I guess this is due dev->state_saved being true set by
pci_pm_runtime_suspend() -> pci_save_state() after my patch and now
pci_pm_runtime_resume() -> pci_restore_standard_config() ->
pci_restore_state() reach the pci_enable_acs(). I think this is possible
to trigger also before my patch if device has the runtime PM callback

I wasn't able to trigger this but I saw
"PCI: Can't parse disable_acs_redir parameter: " followed by a few lines
of junk during boot when I defined pci=disable_acs_redir=0000:00:xy.z
which disappear after your patch.
