Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/1] PCI/AER: Change to use helper pcie_aer_is_native()
 in some places

Hi Tan,

This is very nice!  Thank you for this.

A suggestion.  You could improve this even further, for example:

  if (pci_aer_available() && pcie_aer_is_native(dev)) {

This is because the pcie_aer_is_native() function performs the
dev->aer_cap check internally, so we could rely on it, and avoid
checking the same thing twice.

What do you think?
