The basic requirement is that the device needs to be visible so we can
auto discover it.  As I recall most sleep states don't make the device
invisible and we can handle the rest in the device initializatoin code.

There is certainly a depenency on the config registers being visible.
Although I don't know if much will go wrong if they aren't.

Ceratinly pci_msi_shutdown doesn't have anything to do if the device has
had so much power removed that the device is not even exectuing.
