SubjectRe: [PATCH] Documentation: PCI: pci-error-recovery: rearrange the general sequence
Please make the subject a little more specific.  "rearrange the
general sequence" doesn't say anything about what was affected.

s/betwen/between/

Not sure "general" adds anything in this sentence. "Step 2 and step
3" are not meaningful here in the commit log. It needs to spell out
what those steps are so the log makes sense by itself.

"reset_link" does not appear in pcie_do_recovery(). I'm guessing
you're referring to the "reset_subordinates" function pointer?

I didn't quite understand your response to Oliver, so I'll wait for
your corrections and his ack before proceeding.
