This was tested on the 5.9.12 kernel at that time. As of today, I've 
re-ran the tests on Bjorn's git tree, pci/err branch from Sunday (I 
guess 5.10.0 version).

I noticed the change you are pointing out when trying to propose a patch.

It made me curious on why the pcie_portdrv_slot_reset() is not invoked.

After sprinkling a couple of printk()'s around the pcie_do_recovery() 
and pcie_portdrv_err_handler's I can observe that the 
pcie_portdrv_slot_reset() is never called from pcie_do_recovery() due to 
status returned by reset_subordinates() (actually aer_root_reset() from 
pcie/aer.c) being PCI_ERS_RESULT_RECOVERED.

I reckon, in order to invoke the pcie_portdrv_slot_reset(), the 
aer_root_reset() should have returned PCI_ERS_RESULT_NEED_RESET.

As soon as I plug the calls to pci_restore_state() and pci_save_state() 
into the pcie_portdrv_err_resume() the bus and devices are operational
