Subject[RFC] disable PCIE 'Enable No Snoop' bit by default
From
Date
PCIE 'Enable No Snoop' bit is set by default per PCIE spec, but OS
assumes PCI DMA is snooped, which is legacy PCI device does. Enabling no
snoop might cause potential DMA issues. This patch disables it, if a
driver can work with no snoop, we can provide a helper to enable it.

I didn't see any real breaks, but did see some devices with the bit enabled
