[PATCH 4/4] PCI: quirk Atheros AR93xx to avoid bus reset

From: Alex Williamson
Date: Fri Nov 21 2014 - 13:24:36 EST

Reports against the TL-WDN4800 card indicate that PCI bus reset of
this Atheros device cause system lock-ups and resets. I've also
been able to confirm this behavior on multiple systems. The device
never returns from reset and attempts to access config space of the
device after reset result in hangs. Blacklist bus reset for the
device to avoid this issue.
