Good point. But even if the RDMA and FC contexts are safe, if a
persistent error is reported, the controller is already in trouble and
may not respond to a request to retrieve the CSTS anyway. Perhaps
we should just trust the AER error report and not bother checking
CSTS to decide whether to do the reset. We can still check ctrl->state
and skip the reset if there's already one in progress.

Yep. Will do in v3.
