The driver attempts to disable L0s state, not the entire feature.  It is also required that the device upstream on the bus from the 82574L have this disabled.  Yes, I agree there appears to be something in the os that either ren-enables or fails to disable the feature on the upstream device, as desired.  Platforms/systems also appear to vary in this regard, so the solutions may vary a bit as well.  

Its worth trying your solution as well if what I suggested doesn't work, but there is not one solution that fits all, unfortunately.

Thanks,
