    Last I reviewed CONFIG_PCIEASPM won't buy you *anything* other than
    debugging knobs. With it you can force all devices to enable ASPM
    completely on or disable it. Both of which I think are not really
    useful and instead should be done in userspace given that if you are
    testing ASPM you likely want to test only one one device and its
    respective root complex, not all at the same time.
