This should be folded into the original patch.

I dislike testing for errors like this as it looks like it's testing for
a boolean success.  Use

   ret = pci_load_and_free_saved_state(...);
   if (ret < 0)
      ...

And similarly, below.

This should be dev_warn().

pci_load_and_free_saved_state() won't fail because we know the state is
valid (since we saved it from the device originally).  Warning and
skipping the restore is fine here (and below).

This should be pci_load_saved_state() and then you can avoid the
pci_save_state() below.

dev_warn() also.

You don't need this if you don't free the original state above.
