SubjectRe: Linux Support for Thunderbolt using Apple Monitor
Hi Francois,
It seems that the PCI topology related to the Thunderbird is:
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200/2nd Generation Core Processor Family PCI Express Root Port (rev 09)
03:00.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 151a (rev 01)
04:00.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 151a (rev 01)
04:03.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 151a (rev 01)
04:04.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 151a (rev 01)
37:00.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513
38:00.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513
39:00.0 PCI bridge: Pericom Semiconductor Device 400c (rev 02)
3a:03.0 PCI bridge: Pericom Semiconductor Device 400c (rev 02)
3b:00.0 USB controller: Pericom Semiconductor Device 400e (rev 01)
3b:00.1 USB controller: Pericom Semiconductor Device 400e (rev 01)
3b:00.2 USB controller: Pericom Semiconductor Device 400f (rev 01)
38:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513
3c:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM57761 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)
38:02.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513
3d:00.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): nee Agere Systems nee Lucent Microelectronics FW643 PCI Express 1394b Controller (PHY/Link) (rev 08)
38:03.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513
38:04.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513
38:05.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 1513

It's really a complex topology. The longest path has root port + 3 PCIe switches + endpoint.
The device with id "Intel Corporation Device 151a", "Intel Corporation Device 1513" and
"Pericom Semiconductor Device 400c" should be 3 PCIe switches. I guess the thunderbird
cable is used to connect 04:04.0 to the second PCIe switch with device ID "Intel Corporation
Device 1513".

According to the acpidump sent out by you, I guess the relationship among PCIe and ACPI is as below:
Device (PCI0) // PCIe host bridge
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A08"))
Device (P0P2) //00:01.0
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00010000)
Device (UPSB) //03:00.0
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00)
Device (DSB2) //04:04.0
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00040000)
Method (_RMV, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (OSDW ()) // OSDW-> OS is Darwin
}
Device (UPS2) //37:00.0
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00)
}
}
}
}
}
But _RMV method only returns 1 on iOS or Max OS X. That means ACPI based hotplug is disabled
on Linux for your system. And as Yinghai has pointed out, all the PCIe downstream ports on
the system don't support PCIe hotplug. So need BIOS or hardware changes to support Thunderbolt
cable hotplug on your system.
