Thank you! It's good that this stays the same across suspend/resume.
Do you see different C-state behavior before vs after?
This is the config I see:
00:1d.0 bridge to [bus 01]: ASPM L1 supported; ASPM Disabled
01:00.0 card reader: ASPM L0s L1 supported; L0s L1 Enabled
01:00.1 GigE NIC: ASPM L0s L1 supported; ASPM Disabled
This is actually illegal because PCIe r5.0, sec 126.96.36.199, says software
must not enable L0s in either direction unless components on both ends
of the link support L0s. The bridge (00:1d.0) does not support L0s,
so it's illegal to enable L0s on 01:00.0. I don't know whether this
causes problems in practice.
I don't see anything in rtsx that enables L0s. Can you collect the
dmesg log when booting with "pci=earlydump"? That will show whether
the BIOS left it this way. The PCI core isn't supposed to do this, so
if it did, we need to fix that.
I don't know whether r8169 mucks with ASPM. It is legal to have
different configurations for the two functions, even though they share
the same link. Sec 5.4.1 has rules about how hardware resolves

Let's defer this for now. It sounds worth pursuing, but I can't keep
everything in my head at once.
