Michael, please revert this one as it is already in linux-ppc-next
branch. Sorry for the overhead.

Obviously, I missed the truth that it affects the PCI passthrou path as
reported by Alexey: When passing GPU (0003:01:00.0) which seats behind
the root port, the reset request is routed to skiboot in original code.
In skiboot, the link bouncing events are masked during the reset. So we
don't see EEH (freeze all) error even link bouncing happens. With the
changes included, the reset is done by kernel and the link bouncing
events aren't masked by altering content of PHB3 (or P7IOC) specific
hardware registers which are invisible to kernel (skiboot hides the
hardware specific). It means the link bouncing is seen by the root port
and it causes a EEH (freeze all) error. The PCI passthrough on GPU device
cannot work.
