From: Kevin Barnett <>

add PQI reset to driver shutdown callback to
work around controller bug.

During an 1.) OS shutdown or 2.) kexec outside of a kdump,
the Linux kernel will clear BME on our controller.

If BME is cleared during a controller/host PCIe transfer,
the controller will lock up.

So we perform a PQI reset in the driver's shutdown callback
function to eliminate the possibility of a controller/host
PCIe transfer being active when the kernel clears BME immediately
after calling the driver's shutdown callback.
