    Subject[PATCH 0/3] Fix two PEIe hotplug issues
    Fix PCIe Hotplug so that it works with ExpressCard slots on Dell notebooks
    (and others?) in conjunction with the modparam of pciehp_force=1.

    The PCIe Hotplug driver has two issues when used on Dell notebooks
    which lack ACPI BIOS support for PCIe hotplug:

    1. The driver does not recognise cards that were inserted
    prior to the driver being modprobe'd.

    2. The driver stops functioning after a suspend/resume (RAM) cycle,
    and needs to be rmmod'd and modprobe'd to get it working again.

    This patch series addresses those issues, resulting in a completely
    functional PCIe Hotplug driver for Dell notebooks, and possibly others
    as well which may lack ACPI BIOS support for this.
    Note that pciehp_force=1 is (still) required.

    There are three patches in this series:

    -- fixes problem number 1 (above).

    -- preparation for the resume patch.

    -- fixes problem number 2 (above).
