Why? User does not care if you activate new devlink params when
activating new firmware. Trust me. So why make the user figure out
which of all possible reset option they should select? If there is
a legitimate use case to limit what is reset - it should be handled
by a separate negative attribute, like --live which says don't reset
anything.
