Well, the problem now is that MSI doesn't get enabled on the needed host
bridge 00.0 (device 10de:02f0), so MSI doesn't work at all on my system (but
also doesn't hang my system.) I have no idea how to differentiate the 00.0
device from the "forbidden" 09.0 (device 10de:0270) on my system. Perhaps a
blacklist is really the best? The original patch by NVidia had a white list,
btw, see also here:
http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/linux-kernel/2007/11/25/443612/thread

The output of your current patch:
pci 0000:00:05.0: Boot video device
pci 0000:00:09.0: Found disabled HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:0e.0: Enabling HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:09.0: Found disabled HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:0f.0: Enabling HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:09.0: Found disabled HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:10.0: Enabling HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:09.0: Found disabled HT MSI Mapping
pci 0000:00:10.1: Enabling HT MSI Mapping
So, ok, MSI gets enabled on the devices as such (good), not enabled on 09.0
(good), but also not on the needed host bridge 00.0 (bad).

BTW, I noticed a typo in the patch. In ht_disable_msi_mapping you want the
text to be "Disabling"... instead of
+ dev_info(&dev->dev, "Enabling HT MSI Mapping\n");

And a minor simplification in ht_check_msi_mapping would be instead of
+ if (flags & HT_MSI_FLAGS_ENABLE) {
+ if (found < 2) {
+ found = 2;
+ break;
+ }
+ }
just

+ if (flags & HT_MSI_FLAGS_ENABLE) {
+ found = 2;
+ break;
+ }
as it is the only place where found is set to something higher than 1 and then
the function is exited anyway. Or make the return paths clearer by this change
from

+       int pos, ttl = 48;
+       int found = 0;
+
+       /* check if there is HT MSI cap or enabled on this device */
+       pos = pci_find_ht_capability(dev, HT_CAPTYPE_MSI_MAPPING);
+       while (pos && ttl--) {
+               u8 flags;
+
+               if (found < 1)
+                       found = 1;
+               if (pci_read_config_byte(dev, pos + HT_MSI_FLAGS,
+                                        &flags) == 0) {
+                       if (flags & HT_MSI_FLAGS_ENABLE) {
+                               if (found < 2) {
+                                       found = 2;
+                                       break;
+                               }
+                       }
+               }
+               pos = pci_find_next_ht_capability(dev, pos,
+                                                 HT_CAPTYPE_MSI_MAPPING);
+       }
+
+       return found;
to

+       int pos, ttl = 48;
+
+       /* check if there is HT MSI cap or enabled on this device */
+       pos = pci_find_ht_capability(dev, HT_CAPTYPE_MSI_MAPPING);
+ if (!pos)
+ return 0;
+
+ do {
+               u8 flags;
+
+               if (pci_read_config_byte(dev, pos + HT_MSI_FLAGS,
+                                        &flags) == 0) {
+                       if (flags & HT_MSI_FLAGS_ENABLE)
+ return 2;
+               }
+               pos = pci_find_next_ht_capability(dev, pos,
+                                                 HT_CAPTYPE_MSI_MAPPING);
+       } while (pos && --ttl);
+
+       return 1;
+}
Then at least I would have to think less, under which conditions found takes
the values 0, 1 or 2.

Regards,

Prakash
