SubjectRe: PowerPC Linux and PCI

Doesn't the fact that people have been successfully using PCI devices
in PowerPC machines since 1995 or 1996 suggest to you that it might be
your understanding that is faulty rather than the code? :)

And sparc64 :-)

An important point to mention is that big endian systems need to do
byte twisting in the PCI controller for all the byte-lane issues to
work out properly.

Maybe this guys box has a broken PCI host bridge implementation that
doesn't do the byte-twisting and we should consider that in our
analysis of his problems :-)
