I think we should keep the EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() part of a60a2b73ba69
("PCI: Export pcie_flr()"), but revert the restructuring part.

Prior to a60a2b73ba69, we had

  int pcie_flr(struct pci_dev *dev, int probe);

like all the other reset methods.  AFAICT, the addition of
pcie_has_flr() was to optimize the path slightly because when drivers
call pcie_flr(), they should already know that their hardware supports
FLR.  But I don't think that optimization is worth the extra code
complexity.  If we do need to optimize it, we can check this in the
core during enumeration and set PCI_DEV_FLAGS_NO_FLR_RESET

Christoph, chime in if I'm missing something here.

Checking the return code is probably overkill, since pcie_flr() is
void and returns no errors now.  The only point of the return value is
to tell whether the device supports FLR.  If we call it with "probe ==
0" there's no useful error to return.
