SubjectHow can PCI resource allocation fail?
Hi all,

I'm toying with the alsa-driver for the Creative Labs X-Fi. I'm working on the PCI Express version of this card, though, which is
the same as the PCI version plus a PCIe to PCI bridge but has a different ID:

+-1c.2-[0000:03-04]----00.0-[0000:04]----00.0 1102:0009
03:00.0 PCI bridge: Creative Labs Device 7006
04:00.0 Audio device: Creative Labs [SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio] CA0110-IBG

Now, after adding the ID, the driver fails:

[46833.487579] CA0106 0000:04:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
[46833.487586] CA0106 0000:04:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
[46833.487588] cannot allocate the port
[46833.487594] CA0106: probe of 0000:04:00.0 failed with error -16
The actual error is occurring in

chip->port = pci_resource_start(pci, 0);
chip->res_port = request_region(chip->port, pci_resource_len(pci,0), "snd_ca0106");
if (!chip->res_port) {
snd_ca0106_free(chip);
printk(KERN_ERR "cannot allocate the port\n");
return -EBUSY;
}
This from /proc/iomem:

f9f00000-f9ffffff : PCI Bus 0000:03
f9f00000-f9ffffff : PCI Bus 0000:04
f9ffc000-f9ffffff : 0000:04:00.0
Some additional debug output tells me that the code is actually trying to allocate 16k starting from f9ffc000. What could be
potential reasons for the failure? Do I have to do something with the bridge before I can try to request the region?

Regards,
Christian

PS: lcpci -vv output afterwards, can't see anything special here.
