Thank you very much for the review ^^

ACK. Will use PCI_POSSIBLE_ERROR()

A quick grep showed that there are around 80 drivers which have
pci_error_handlers. I was thinking that it would be better if we handle
these drivers in another patch series since the current patch series is
itself 25 patches long. And in my short tenure reading LKML, I gathered
that folks generally are not so kind to a long list of patches in a
single patch series ^^' (I might be wrong though, Apologies)

The consensus on the patch series does seem slightly positive so
ideally, I was hoping that we would not have the case where a author
does not like the way we are handling this patch. Then again, I'm
pretty sure that I might be wrong ^^'

I hope it would be okay that I send in a new patch series with the
suggested changes and handle the other changes in another patch series
^^

Thanks,
