    While technically useful on its own this commit really should go together with
    the following upstream commit:

    ("s390/pci: Recover handle in clp_set_pci_fn()")

    While the problem fixed here is independent, writing to the power/recover
    attributes will often fail due to an inconsistent function handle without the
    second commit.
    In particular without it a PCI function in the error state can not be
    recovered or powered off.

    I would recommend adding the second commit to the backports as well.
