SBR and Link Disable are done from the down stream port, though, so the
host can still communicate with the function that took the link down.
That's entirely different than taking the link down from the end device,
so I'm not sure how NVMe can fix that.

But I can't even recall why NVMe defined NSSR to require PCIe LTSSM
Detect. That seems entirely unnecessary and is just asking for trouble.
