SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/4, v14] PCI, ACPI: Physical PCI slot objects

I have to apologize. I was using v14 unintentionally on my test
environment yesterday, while I thought I was using v15.

I think v15 will prevent senario (b), though I have not tried it
yet. I'll check it again.

And I agree that Alex-san's patch go to Jesse-san's linux-next.
If I found something after that, I'll report it or send a
incremental patch. To tell the truth, I have several patches
that are waiting for Alex-san's patch to be merged to linux-next:)

Though I might misunderstand something about your patch, I thought
get_slot_from_name() approach would break what your patch is trying
to do.

My understanding about your patch is as follows:

(x) If multiple hotplug drivers try to register the same slot (try
to handle the same slot, in other words), pci_hp_register()
returns -EBUSY.

(y) If one or more drivers try to assign the same name to multiple
slots, pci_hp_register() returns -EEXIST.

I thought senario (x) will return -EEXIST instead of -EBUSY if we
use get_slot_from_name() approach. So I made a different patch.

In addition, regardless of whether my understanding is correct or not,
I noticed my patch I sent yesterday might be not good, because I made
it under the misunderstanding that I thought pci_hp_register() is called
even by ACPI pci slot driver...

Anyway, I'll look at your patch again after having several cups of coffee.

Thanks,
Kenji Kaneshige
