I think any interrupt to the EP should be delivered to the function driver in
interrupt context, it could be function level reset interrupt, hot reset
interrupt, link state interrupt etc., These are right now not supported but it
will use the same notification mechanism to propagate interrupt from controller
driver to function driver.
