OK, thanks.  I'm still uncomfortable with this issue, so I think I'm
going to apply this series but omit this patch.  Here's why:

1) The fact that resets may cause hotplug events isn't specific to
DPC, so I don't think dpc_reset_link() is the right place.  For
instance, aer_root_reset() ultimately does a secondary bus reset.  The
pci_slot_reset() -> pciehp_reset_slot() path goes to some trouble to
ignore the resulting hotplug event, but the pci_bus_reset() path does
not.

2) I'm not convinced that "hotplug_is_native()" is the correct test.
Even if we're using ACPI hotplug (acpiphp), that will detach the
drivers and remove the devices, won't it?

I considered something like the patch below, which partly addresses my
first concern, but not the second.  Even the first one is awfully
messy because of the different ways the aer_root_reset() path can
work.
