[PATCH v4 5/8] pciehp: Don't check for adapter or latch status whiledisabling

From: Rajat Jain
Date: Tue Feb 04 2014 - 21:30:36 EST

It does not make much sense to refuse to disable a slot if an
adapter is not present or the latch is open. If an adapter is not
present, it provides an even better reason to disable the device

This is specially a problem for link state hot-plug, because some
ports use in band mechanism for presence detection. Thus
when link goes down, presence detect also goes down. We _want_ that
the removal should take place in such case.

Thus remove the checks for adapter and latch in pciehp_disable_slot()
