The code change introduced by commit 6d2c89441571; would

     "this code change" instead of "this breaks"

work better? If not, I can also rephrase the whole paragraph along the following lines:

Commit 6d2c89441571 ("PCI/ERR: Update error status after reset_link()") breaks the flow
of pcie_do_recovery() as it prevents the actions needed when the initial error is
PCI_ERS_RESULT_CAN_RECOVER or PCI_ERS_RESULT_NEED_RESET from taking place which causes
error recovery to fail.

... and do away with the first paragraph.

OK; will do that to clarify that what's being proposed here is:

     1. fix the regression introduced by commit 6d2c89441571
     2. address the problem that commit 6d2c89441571 aimed to fix

Perhaps post_reset_status is not a great choice; would reset_result or reset_link_result be better?

Cheers,
Hedi.
