Fix exactly _one_ thing or else you make your patch hard to review.

The bug is that the bits are wrong, just fix the bits!

Now you are reading a register, and potentially clearing status bits and
causing other side effects, that would not happen in this code path
where hdev->reset_pending is true.

Don't do stuff like this!

If you want to add code to print out the register value, that is a
separate patch, for net-next, and it must be done properly. In that
you should only read the register in the same code paths you do
previously. Otherwise you must _clearly_ explain why reading the
register value in new code paths is OK, and the side effects will
not potentially cause problems for the pending reset operation. It
is still going to be a net-next improvement only.

Thank you.
