Subject: Re: [PATCH] nvme/pci: Use host managed power state for suspend

A couple nitpicks, mostly leftover from the previous iteration
(I didn't see replies to those comments from you, despite seeing
a reply to my mail, assuming it didn't get lost):

At this point I'd rather see those in the PCIe driver.  While the
power state feature is generic in the spec I don't see it actually
being used anytime anywhere else any time soon.

But maybe we can add a nvme_get_features helper ala nvme_set_features
in the core to avoid a little boilerplate code for the future?

I can't find any wording in the spec that guarantees the highest
numerical power state is the deepest.  But maybe I'm just missing
something as such an ordering would be really helpful?

This just comments that what, but I think we need a why here as the
what is fairly obvious..
