Hi Gerry,
    You are right, add pdev->is_added flag check here only fix the race condition window
between remove and rescan sysfs interfaces. Maybe we need a more comprehensive solution to
solve these problems between hotplug/remove/rescan actions.Next, I will do a more detailed test for
[RFC PATCH v1 00/22] introduce PCI bus lock to serialize PCI hotplug operations patches.
That is a more comprehensive solution actually.
