Ok let me take a stab at addressing it better in my next version. Basically
here's what I am thinking. Pls let me know if there is anything else I need to

* Introduce a status bit for device to indicate "reset in progress". This could
  be adopted by other transports also (for ex PCI).

* For v3 MMIO devices, driver, after initiating reset, should wait until status = 0
  or device indicates "failure". Should the spec advise what a driver should do
  in case of failure after reset? Not sure if the outcome would be different if
  driver were to issue reset again. Again this advice should be common to both
  MMIO and PCI I think.
