FYI, a related issue I saw about a year two ago with Dell servers was
with a dual ported NVMe add-in (non U.2) card, is that once you did
a subsystem reset, which would cause both controller to retrain the link
you'd run into Firmware First error handling issue that would instantly
crash the system. I don't really have the hardware anymore, but the
end result was that I think the affected product ended up shipping
with subsystem resets only enabled for the U.2 form factor.
