    Subject[PATCH 2.6.24-rc4] PCI: refuse to re-add a device to a bus upon pci_scan_child_bus()
    Dear Penguins,

    As a follow up on my own post ( ), I
    have solved a small bug/misbehavior within the pci_scan_single_device().

    The misbehavior manifest itself upon calling pci_scan_child_bus() with a
    bus which already contain some devices. After scanning is done devices
    that already existed will be present twice in the PCI bus devise list.
    Once with is_added indication and once without. Trying to add this bus
    will cause a resource conflict as the same device is already present and

    This patch will simply prevent a device to be added to a bus list if it
    is already there.

    Points to consider:
    1. I am not a PCI Guru and might have over looked the bigger picture. Is
    it OK to prevent a device of being re-added?
    2. I have decided that two devices are, in fact, the same instance if it
    has the same: vendor, device, and devfn. Is there a finer test for a
    device identity?

    p.s. As per it is
    preferred for Mozilla Firefox clients to attach the patch, hence my
    patch is attached.
