SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 00/11] PCI core learns hotplug

Got it, we had a double-free in the PCIe port driver which was
causing all sorts of problems.

I fixed that and now this patch series is stable enough for
others to actually apply and test. As of now, there are no known
bugs.

Of course, I'm going to keep testing and try to find some more
bugs. :)

As a reminder, if you want to play with this series, you'll also
need these two patches:

> http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.pci/3437
> http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/7/173

And now this third patch:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.pci/3524

Finally, patch 07/11 needs to be updated. I'll post a reply to
that mail with the updated patch.

Thanks.
