Commit bdb5ac85777d ("PCI/ERR: Handle fatal error recovery") uses
reset_link() to recover from fatal errors.  But during fatal error
recovery, if the initial value of error status is PCI_ERS_RESULT_DISCONNECT
or PCI_ERS_RESULT_NO_AER_DRIVER then even after successful recovery (using
reset_link()) pcie_do_recovery() will report the recovery result as
failure.  Update the status of error after reset_link().

You can reproduce this issue by triggering a SW DPC using "DPC Software
Trigger" bit in "DPC Control Register".  You should see recovery failed
dmesg log as below:

  pcieport 0000:00:16.0: DPC: containment event, status:0x1f27 source:0x0000
  pcieport 0000:00:16.0: DPC: software trigger detected
  pci 0000:04:00.0: AER: can't recover (no error_detected callback)
  pcieport 0000:00:16.0: AER: device recovery failed
