The commit log suggests that this is a simple cleanup that doesn't
change any behavior, but that's not quite true:

- The new code would clear PCI_ERR_ROOT_STATUS, but the old code
does not.

- The old code masks the status bits with the severity bits before
clearing, but the new code does not.

The commit log needs to show why these changes are what we want.
