That sounds good to me. Christoph noted RDMA isn't safe to do this in the
callback anyway, and it's probably a bad idea in general to dispatch new
requests within another's completion: that may prevent reclaiming the only
available tag, and then deadlock.

So with that in mind, this AER persistent error handler could call
nvme_should_reset() with NVME_CSTS_CFS as a constant value for the csts
parameter.
