Hmm... From the description, I thought this patch only took advantage
of DECLARE_PCI_FIXUP_CLASS_FINAL to remove the "if (pdev->class ==
XXX)" tests.
If it *also* skips a disable/enable sequence on non-xhci controllers,
please make that a separate patch so it's clear what's happening.

It's very important to be clear about these things for people who are
deciding whether to backport patches into distros. All the zillions
of PCI changes we're doing make their lives hard enough without having
subtle behavior changes hidden in patches that seem to be "code
restructure only, no behavior change."
