No, my point is that the user can enable/disable ASPM via sysfs, and
the driver will not know anything about it.  There's no callback that
tells the driver when this happens.

My question is whether this code works when that happens.  I doubt it
works, because if ASPM is not enabled at this moment, you return
without doing enabling ASPM in the chip below.

If the user subsequently enables ASPM via sysfs, the chip setup below
will not be done.

If there's chip-specific setup to make ASPM work, I think the
chip-specific part needs to be done unconditionally.
