Thank you very much for information.

The direct cause of the problem that your slot was not turned on
is power fault. I guess acpiphp is suffering the same problem.
Unfortunately, it's difficult for me to analyze the root cause
of this power fault. Please ask the hardware vendor about it. I
hope board replacement will fix the problem.

By the way, thanks to your report, I noticed the several points
that might need to be fixed as follows. I'll try to improve that.

- The message "Firmware did not grant requested _OSC control" is
confusing and similar message is already displayed by the caller
of acpi_pci_osc_control_set(). Therefore, it should be removed.

- If the platform has _OSC control method, OSHP should not be
evaluated.

- (maybe) pciehp must not evaluate OSHP (But your platform seems
to provide OSHP for several PCIe hotplug slots because your
platform provides OSHP even though it doesn't have any SHPC
based PCI/PCI-X hot-plug slots. I need to check PCI firmware
spec again).

- pciehp needs something to prevent power fault interrupt storm.

Thanks,
Kenji Kaneshige
