I think Keith posted a patch to do this. If firmware first is enabled, DPC
init is skipped after his patch.

Oza was able to plumb the DPC handling into error recovery callbacks of
the portdrv since the portdrv layer already provides this facilities such
as reset_link and resume.

The way DPC and AER works is almost identical from AER portdrv perspective.

I really like his plumbing. Putting DPC code into AER makes it more
convoluted in my opinion.
