SubjectRE: [PATCH 1/1] x86/platform/x86: Fix count of CHas on multi-pci-segment arches
Date
Kan -- sorry for my late-night typo. My description for "hubless" should have said "a single segment/domain" rather than single bus. 

> "hubless" -- equivalent to "glueless" or "white box" where our BIOS sets
> things up with a single bus for all sockets.

******** single segment/domain *********
Sorry for the spam!
Gary
