OK.  This is similar to
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20201002184735.1229220-8-seanvk.dev@oregontracks.org/,
which you cited above except for the bridge/dev question and the
addition here of RC_EC.

I tried to split that back into its own patch and started with the
commit message from that patch.  But I got stuck on the commit
message.  I got as far as:

  In some cases an error may be reported by a device not visible to
  the OS, e.g., if firmware manages the device and passes error
  information to the OS via ACPI APEI.

But I still can't quite connect that to the patch.  "bridge" is
clearly a device visible to Linux.

I guess we're trying to assert that if "bridge" is not a Root Port,
Downstream Port, or RCEC, we shouldn't clear the error status because 
the error came from a device Linux doesn't know about.  But I think
"bridge" is *always* either a Root Port or a Downstream Port:

  if (type == PCI_EXP_TYPE_ROOT_PORT ||
      type == PCI_EXP_TYPE_DOWNSTREAM)
	  bridge = dev;
  else
	  bridge = pci_upstream_bridge(dev);

pci_upstream_bridge() returns either NULL (in which case previous uses
dereference a NULL pointer), or dev->bus->self, which is always a Root
Port, Switch Downstream Port, or Switch Upstream Port (or NULL for the
special case of VFs).
