Ok, the following way, with the original idea improved for a bit, would
work for you:

- Don't clear DISCONNECTED flag in eeh_pe_detach_dev().
- Use the flag for your case.
- Clear DISCONNECTED flag after the hogplug is done, right before
  eeh_pe_state_clear(pe, EEH_PE_KEEP) in eeh_reset_device().
