The scenario I'm mentioning is to "echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/<some
device under the slot>/remove", then "echo <that device address> >
/sys/bus/pci/rescan". This would break the ordering implicit in using
a fixup defined for the root port. It seems like it'd make a lot more
sense to add a test on the parent bridge more similar to how the bus
reset works. It's not the subordinate devices imposing the
no-bus-reset flag, it's the bridge device and the objects and code
should support and reflect that. Thanks,

Alex
