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.
