    I also think that the current names are wrong. But even if we fix the
    slot name of shpchp/pciehp, it doesn't ensure that slot names are same
    among pci_slot.ko and the other hotplug dirvers.

    BTW, I'm planning to suggest the patch for shpchp/pciehp to use slot
    number as a slot name (as they used to do), and add a module option
    to use the combination of bus number and slot number as a slot name
    as a workaround for problematic platforms.

    Thanks,
    Kenji Kaneshige
