Subject[PATCH bisected regression in 4.14] PCI: fix race while enabling upstream bridges concurrently
In pci_enable_bridge() pci_enable_device() is called before calling
pci_set_master(), thus check pci_is_enabled() becomes true in the
middle of this sequence. As a result in pci_enable_device_flags()
concurrent enable of device on same bridge could think that this
bridge is completely enabled, but actually it's not yet.

For me this race broke ethernet devices after booting kernel via
kexec, normal reboot was fine.

This patch removes racy fast-path: pci_enable_bridge() will take
pci_bridge_mutex and do nothing if bridge is already enabled.
