Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] PCI/AER: Do not use APEI/HEST to disable AER services globally

As part of the ACPI Platform Error Interfaces (APEI), the HEST table
describes the meaning of errors sources. Although HEST is related to
ownership of AER, the gatekeeper for AER ownership is the _OSC method.

HEST can identify error sources as firmware-first with granularity
ranging from device-level to global. It's not uncommon for HEST to
say "all AER errors sent via of APEI are firmware-first" by setting
the firmware-first and global bits. It's still allowable to do this
and grant the OS AER control over part of the PCIe topology.

Because there is quite some flexibility in how HEST and _OSC can
interact, it is wrong to assume that global firmware-first implies
_OSC will never grant AER control. If we don't ask for control, we are
not going to get it, and we may have entire parts of the PCIe tree
that do not report errors. Thus, ask for AER ownership, regardless of
HEST.
