When an error is detected on a PCIe device which does not have an
AER-aware driver, prevent AER infrastructure from reporting
successful error recovery.

This is because the report_error_detected() function that gets
called in the first phase of recovery process allows forward
progress even when the driver for the device does not have AER
capabilities. It seems that all callbacks (in pci_error_handlers
structure) registered by drivers that gets called during error
recovery are not mandatory. So the intention of the infrastructure
design seems to be to allow forward progress even when a specific
callback has not been registered by a driver. However, if error
handler structure itself has not been registered, it doesn't make
sense to allow forward progress.

As a result of the current design, in the case of a single device
having an AER-unaware driver or in the case of any function in a
multi-function card having an AER-unaware driver, a successful
recovery is reported.

Typical scenario this happens is when a PCI device is detached
from a KVM host and the pci-stub driver on the host claims the
device. The pci-stub driver does not have error handling capabilities
but the AER infrastructure still reports that the device recovered

The changes proposed here leaves the device(s)in an unrecovered state
if the driver for the device or for any device in the subtree
does not have error handler structure registered. This reflects
the true state of the device and prevents any partial recovery (or no
recovery at all) reported as successful.

  - Made changes so that all devices in the subtree have the error
    state set correctly.
