Yes, the PCI Express bridge driver is quite buggy. I also think it's
the wrong approach to take -- weren't you working on a generic way to
have multiple drivers attach to the same device?

linux-kernel. Here's a patch:

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
