Agree. Reset is common for pci_channel_io_frozen errors. I did not
look into aer_root_reset() implementation. So if state
is pci_channel_io_frozen then we can assume the slot has been
reseted.

Yes, agreed. It does not handle ACPI hotplug case. In case of
ACPI hotplug, native_pcie_hotplug = 0. May be we need a new helper
function. hotplug_is_enabled() ?

Moving it outside status == PCI_ERS_NEED_RESET check will let it execute
in non frozen error as well. IIUC, we should not call it on all error
types. Let me know your comments.
