Currently function disable_device() detects slot state by checking
existence of PCI device for function 0. It's unreliable because PCI
device for function 0 may be removed through sysfs interface. If that
happens, it will cause powering off a hotplug slot without destroying
all PCI devices.

On the other hand, it won't hurt us except wasting some computation
power if the check is removed, because all code of disable_device()
is self-protected. So remove the check.
