pci_slot_reset() function itself has dependency on hotplug ops. So
what kind of slot reset is needed for non-hotplug case?

static int pci_slot_reset(struct pci_slot *slot, int probe)
int rc;

if (!slot || !pci_slot_resetable(slot))
return -ENOTTY;

if (!probe)


rc = pci_reset_hotplug_slot(slot->hotplug, probe);

if (!probe)

return rc;

static int pci_reset_hotplug_slot(struct hotplug_slot *hotplug, int probe)
int rc = -ENOTTY;

if (!hotplug || !try_module_get(hotplug->owner))
return rc;

if (hotplug->ops->reset_slot)
rc = hotplug->ops->reset_slot(hotplug, probe);


return rc;
And we shouldn't do it here in reset_link(), that's

I agree.
