Subject[RFC PATCH] Xen PCI back - do slot and bus reset (v0).

While I was trying to narrow down the state of GPU passthrough
(still not finished) and figuring what needs to be done I realized
that Xen PCIback did not reset my GPU properly (when I crashed the
Windows guest by mistake). It does an FLR reset or Power one - if
the device supports it. But it seems that some of these GPUs
are liars and actually don't do the power part properly.

One way to fix this is by doing a slot (aka device) and bus reset.
Of course to do that - you need to make sure that all of the
functions of a device are under the ownership of xen-pciback.
Otherwise you might accidently reset your sound card while it is
being used.

These RFC patches cleanup pci back a bit and also make it possible
for Xen pciback to do the whole gamma of 'reset' for PCI devices:
FLR, power management, AER, slot and bus reset if neccessary.

Thanks go to Gordan Bobic for educating me on how to "reprogram"
and GFX460 in a Quardro 4000M and also reporting oddities when
a PCI device was reset but it looked like it was not reset.
