I think your observation is correct: it looks like if we boot with all
devices in D0 (which I would expect to be a very common case), we don't
touch ASPM configuration at all. That would mean we would just leave
the BIOS settings alone.

It seems pretty surprising that it could have been this way since
v3.6, when db288c9c5f9d was merged, and we haven't noticed until now,
but if most BIOSes configure ASPM themselves, maybe it's possible.

But I wonder if we can untangle ASPM from pci_set_power_state(). I
don't think they're really related. There are a zillion .suspend()
and .resume() methods that call pci_set_power_state(). I doubt that
we need to do ASPM configuration during suspend, and I'm dubious about
resume, too. What about a patch like the following?
