According to Ethan's commit message, there are two issues here:
One, that pciehp may remove a device even though DPC recovered the error,
and two, that a null pointer deref occurs.

The latter is most certainly not a locking issue but failure of DPC
to hold a reference on the pci_dev.

Thanks,

Lukas
