Rebase patches about pcie link disable/enable in /sys. please check them at


PCI, sysfs: merge dev and bus cpuaffinity show handling
PCI, sys: Use is_visable() with boot_vga attribute for pci_dev
PCI, sysfs: Put resource_alignment info pci_bus_attrs array
PCI: Move pcie_link_disable to pcie-link.c
PCI, sysfs: Add pcie attrs for pcie device under pci dev dir.
PCI: Add link_disable in /sysfs for pcie device

it is based on for-pci-root-bus-hotplug branch

Or you can just master branch like
git clone git://

After you remove USB3 expresscard, you need to

echo 1 > /sys/devices/pci0000\:00/0000\:00\:1c.7/pcie_link_disable
echo 0 > /sys/devices/pci0000\:00/0000\:00\:1c.7/pcie_link_disable
