The PE primary bus cannot be got from its child devices when having
full hotplug in error recovery. The PE primary bus is cached, which
is done in commit <05ba75f84864> ("powerpc/eeh: Fix stale cached primary
bus"). In eeh_reset_device(), the flag (EEH_PE_PRI_BUS) is cleared
before the PCI hot remove. eeh_pe_bus_get() then returns NULL as the
PE primary bus in pnv_eeh_reset() and it crashes the kernel eventually.

This fixes the issue by clearing the flag (EEH_PE_PRI_BUS) before the
PCI hot add. With it, the PowerNV EEH reset backend (pnv_eeh_reset())
can get valid PE primary bus through eeh_pe_bus_get().
