Exactly. The callbacks implemented are from standard PCI error recovery
(Documentation/PCI/pci-error-recovery.txt) and the changes doesn't
assume any platform in specific. The code was tested only on powerpc
systems since I don't have any mlx4 card on other platforms, however,
these changes shouldn't make the error recover any worse than the
current state.
