If we do that, it might need rework of hotplug driver. It will be a big
change. IMO, its better not to touch that bee hive.

It will do the reset at hardware level. But driver state is not
cleaned up. So doing bus reset will restore both driver and
hardware states.
Also for non-fatal errors, if reset is requested then we still need
some kind of bus reset call here.
