A cover letter for the series would be really nice.

The above looks very hard to understand to me.  It uses some AMD
specific terms, and also is overly specific to NVMe.  Any other PCIe
device not doing a runtime-D3 in these slots will have the same problem.

So I think you should generalize the flag name and description to
describe what broken behavior the AMD root port has here, and only
cursory refer to drivers that are broken by it.

I'd also much prefer if the flag is used on every pci_dev that is
affected by the broken behavior rather than requiring another lookup
in the driver.
