Subject[PATCH 5.0 107/117] PCI: pciehp: Ignore Link State Changes after powering off a slot
From: Sergey Miroshnichenko <>

commit 3943af9d01e94330d0cfac6fccdbc829aad50c92 upstream.

During a safe hot remove, the OS powers off the slot, which may cause a
Data Link Layer State Changed event. The slot has already been set to
OFF_STATE, so that event results in re-enabling the device, making it
impossible to safely remove it.

Clear out the Presence Detect Changed and Data Link Layer State Changed
events when the disabled slot has settled down.

It is still possible to re-enable the device if it remains in the slot
after pressing the Attention Button by pressing it again.

Fixes the problem that Micah reported below: an NVMe drive power button may
not actually turn off the drive.
