That piece of code is supposed to be executed on safe removal via sysfs
or an Attention Button press: The card remains in the slot, even though
the slot is brought down. So the card is quiesced.

However IIUC, on fatal error the link goes down and for pciehp, that's
essentially a surprise removal. In that case, the above code is not
intended to be executed, rather the devices below the hotplug bridge
are marked disconnected. See this patch I posted yesterday:
