Commit bdb5ac85777d ("PCI/ERR: Handle fatal error recovery") uses
reset_link() to recover from fatal errors. But, if the reset is
successful there is no need to continue the rest of the error recovery
checks. Also, during fatal error recovery, if the initial value of error
even after successful recovery (using reset_link()) pcie_do_recovery()
will report the recovery result as failure. So update the status of
error after reset_link().
I like the part about updating "status" with the result of
reset_link(), and I split that into its own patch because it
seems like a fix that *can* be separated.

But I'm not convinced that we should skip the ->slot_reset()
callbacks if the reset_link() was successful.
If reset_link() call is successful then the result value will be
"PCI_ERS_RESULT_RECOVERED". So even if you proceed with
rest of the code, slot_reset() will never get called right ?
According to
Documentation/PCI/pci-error-recovery.rst, we should call
->slot_reset() after completion of the reset.

For example, rsxx_err_handler implements ->slot_reset(), but
not ->resume(). If we reset the device, we'll claim success and
return, but we won't call rsxx_slot_reset(), which does a bunch
of important-looking recovery stuff.

If pci-error-recovery.rst is wrong, we should fix that (after
auditing all the drivers to make sure they match).
