Subject[PATCH v2] PCI: PM: Move to D0 before calling pci_legacy_resume_early()

In pci_legacy_suspend_late(), the device state is moved to PCI_UNKNOWN.

In pci_pm_thaw_noirq(), the state is supposed to be moved back to PCI_D0,
but the current code misses the pci_legacy_resume_early() path, so the
state remains in PCI_UNKNOWN in that path. As a result, in the resume
phase of hibernation, this causes an error for the Mellanox VF driver,
which fails to enable MSI-X because pci_msi_supported() is false due
to dev->current_state != PCI_D0:

mlx4_core a6d1:00:02.0: Detected virtual function - running in slave mode
mlx4_core a6d1:00:02.0: Sending reset
mlx4_core a6d1:00:02.0: Sending vhcr0
mlx4_core a6d1:00:02.0: HCA minimum page size:512
mlx4_core a6d1:00:02.0: Timestamping is not supported in slave mode
mlx4_core a6d1:00:02.0: INTx is not supported in multi-function mode, aborting
PM: dpm_run_callback(): pci_pm_thaw+0x0/0xd7 returns -95
PM: Device a6d1:00:02.0 failed to thaw: error -95

To be more accurate, the "resume" phase means the "thaw" callbacks which
run before the system enters hibernation: when the user runs the command
"echo disk > /sys/power/state" for hibernation, first the kernel "freezes"
all the devices and creates a hibernation image, then the kernel "thaws"
the devices including the disk/NIC, writes the memory to the disk, and
powers down. This patch fixes the error message for the Mellanox VF driver
in this phase.

When the system starts again, a fresh kernel starts to run, and when the
kernel detects that a hibernation image was saved, the kernel "quiesces"
the devices, and then "restores" the devices from the saved image. In this
device_resume_noirq() -> ... ->
pci_pm_restore_noirq() ->
pci_pm_default_resume_early() ->
pci_power_up() moves the device states back to PCI_D0. This path is
not broken and doesn't need my patch.
