Makes sense.

I'm also thinking if we should change the tree in PCI ENDPOINT SUBSYSTEM to
git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/helgaas/pci.git or maybe
git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/lpieralisi/pci.git/?

since most of the endpoint patches also deals with modifying the controller
drivers.

Thanks
Kishon
