It's worse than that.

It won't.

Look,

pci_legacy_init() sets pci_root_bus
pcibios_irq_init() calls pirq_peer_trick(), which uses pci_root_bus

Hence: pci_legacy_init() must come before pcibios_irq_init()

pcibios_irq_init() sets pcibios_enable_irq
pci_legacy_init() calls into drivers, which call pcibios_enable_device(),
which uses pcibios_enable_irq

Hence: pci_legacy_init() must come _after_ pcibios_irq_init()

uh-oh.

(and pci_direct_init() and pci_pcbios_init() need to come before
pci_legacy_init(), because pci_legacy_init() needs pci_root_ops)

For some reason, the below patch stops the oopses. Not sure why.


Greg, do you have time/inclination to untangle (and preferably document)
this mess?
