Subject: [PATCH 0/3, v8] PCI, ACPI: Physical PCI slot objects
Date: Tue, 4 Mar 2008 17:42:52 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Greg, all,

This is v8 of my "introduce pci_slot" series, to be considered for
inclusion in linux-next to get more test exposure and shake out
the bugs.

The major change in this revision is removing an earlier patch
which removed the 'path' sysfs attribute on SGI machines. After
review from Jesse Barnes and Prarit Bhargava, they kindly
informed me that 'path' is actually an SGI physical path, and not
a PCI address. My patch would have definitely broken userspace on
SGI machines, so I eliminated it, and 'path' remains on SGI boxes.

This brings the patch series down to a total of 3 patches:


Thanks for all the code reviews from various people.

I'm now just looking for some people to beat on this code and let
me know where I screwed up. :)
