    thanks for ACKing the feedback.
    I think there is still some confusion...

    Correct. The patch ignores/overides pci_root_ops with sn_pci_root_ops
    (which is what I originally suggested).

    Mathew's point was only raw_pci_ops needs to point at a different
    set of struct pci_raw_ops (see include/linux/pci.h).

    If it can be avoided, preferably not. But that's up to Jesse/Tony I think.

    Can you quote the bit of the patch which implements "if the bus does not
    exist" check?
    I can't find it.

    I think that's up to Jesse/Tony.
    I don't "own" any of the code in question.
    Just trying to undo the confusion I caused.
