Subject: [PATCH v4 7/8] PCI/ERR: Remove redundant clearing of AER register in pcie_do_recovery()

pcie_do_recovery() is shared across the following paths:
 - ACPI APEI
 - Native AER path
 - EDR
 - DPC

ACPI APEI
==========

  ghes_handle_aer()
    aer_recover_queue()
      kfifo_in_spinlocked(aer_recover_ring)

  aer_recover_work_func()
    while (kfifo_get(aer_recover_ring))
      pcie_do_recovery()

In this path the system firmware clears the AER registers before
handing off the record to the OS in ghes_handle_aer()

Native AER
==========

 aer_irq()
   aer_add_err_devices_to_queue()
     kfifo_put(&rpc->aer_fifo, *e_dev)
     clear_error_source_aer_registers()   <---- AER registers are cleard

 aer_isr()
   aer_isr_one_error()
    handle_error_source()
      pcie_do_recovery()

The AER registers are cleared during the handling of IRQ, i.e before we
the recovery starts.

DPC
=====

  dpc_handler()
    dpc_process_error()
    pci_aer_clear_status()       <---- AER registers are cleared
    pcie_do_recovery()

EDR
====

  edr_handle_event()
    dpc_process_error()
    pci_aer_raw_clear_status()  <---- AER registers are cleared
    pcie_do_recovery()

In all the above paths, the AER registers are cleared before
pcie_do_recovery(). The non fatal status AER registers are again cleared
in pcie_do_recovery(). This is redundant.

Remove redundant clearing of AER register in pcie_do_recovery()
