Lukas, I have added your Acked-by tag from the v1 [1] of patch series,
since this patch has not changed in v2. I hope that's okay. If not, I
apologize for that and can resend the patch series without the tag.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

[1]: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20211011194740.GA14357@wunner.de/

Also, regarding your comments from v1 patch series [1] about re-naming the
RESPONSE_IS_PCI_ERROR to RESPONSE_IS_PCI_TIMEOUT. We could indeed change
the change to RESPONSE_IS_PCI_TIMEOUT for pciehp, but then I'm afraid
that picehp would be the odd one out. I mean, since in all the other
places we are using RESPONE_IS_PCI_TIMEOUT to see if any error occured
while reading from a device.

RESPONSE_IS_PCI_ERROR stills gives an idea to the readers that some PCI
error occured. It was my understanding that timeout is also a kind of
PCI error (I might be horribly wrong here, given my very less experience
with PCI subsystem) so it would be okay to use RESPONSE_IS_PCI_ERROR
here.

If that is not the case please let me know. But I am not sure what to
do here? If RESPONSE_IS_PCI_ERROR does not fit here, should the right
option would be to revert/remove this patch from the series?

Thanks,
Naveen
