I guess you missed the changelog in qemu patchset's cover letter, see if
it helps(copy from cover letter):

5. Change what eventfd signals(check vfio driver patch). Before,
vfio-pci driver add 1 to the counter, which doesn't have meaning, just
for notification. Now, vfio-pci's error detected handler read the
uncorrectable error status and signal it to qemu.

Why? When testing previous version(host aer driver still reset link),
found that there is quite possibility that register reading returns the
invalid value 0xFFFFFFFF, which results in all(2 in my environment)
qemu's vfio-pci function send AER to root port while I only inject error
into one function. This is unreasonable, and I think it is the result of
reading during device reset. Previous patch does considered to find the
real function who has error happened, but won't work under the situation
I found. So move the register reading as early as possible would be the
nature thoughts, and it is moved into vfio-pci driver. Although now
reset_link is disabled in aer driver, get the uncor error status as
early as possible still make sense, for example: if user space driver
does device reset once receiving the error notification, and then read
register.
