The following Oops can be encountered if a device removal or system shutdown
is initiated while an EEH recovery is in process:

The remove handler frees AFU memory while the EEH recovery is in progress,
leading to a race condition. This can result in a crash if the recovery thread
tries to access this memory.

To resolve this issue, the cxlflash remove handler will evaluate the device
state and yield to any active reset or probing threads.
