Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH V2] Xen/pciback: Implement PCI slot or bus reset with 'do_flr' SysFS attribute


Do you have any further comments on the current version of this patch?. Otherwise, I will work on the review comments and publish next version of this patch later this week. Please let me know. Thanks.

I don't follow: The scope of other devices/functions possibly
affected by a reset depends on the type of reset, doesn't it?

According to my understanding this contradicts the comment
ahead of pci_reset_slot(), which talks of multiple slots per bus.
In such a setup, I can't see why resetting on slot would affect
other slots on the same bus. At the same time the comment
says that the slot reset may resolve to a bus one when there's
just a single slot on the bus.
For legacy PCI/PCI-X, we can have multiple slots per bus but not with
(each link will be on a separate bus).
Is that true even for root complex integrated end points? A
random system's lspci output doesn't seem to agree with what
you say. A typical example would be USB controllers all sitting
on bus 0, but having different slot numbers. You clearly won't
be able to ever bus-reset these, and if you checked all devices
on bus 0 you would then also not be able to slot-reset them.
Here, slot reset refers to any PCIe slot that implements or supports
hotplug feature. The slot reset ultimately invokes "pciehp_reset_slot()".
W.r.t integrated endpoints, these can be reset either through FLR or
secondary bus reset methods only.
