attribute((packed)). It ensures that compiler won't add gaps in there
for better alignment. As I wrote I'm not sure whether you need them at
all, since you use u32 here which are aligned naturally. But bear this
in mind while defining the rest of your structures which are transferred
from/to the HW.

OK, then you have type error which you should fix instead. Perhaps
define the constnts with U suffix?

Similarly to other busy waiting code you have in other places. Some
udelay with a loop bound.

Yes, that will do the job.

Remove dev_kfree_skb_any(skb) to not free the skb so that ndev layer can
requeue the buffer.

What exactly do you need the state of pcie for? The core should do it
fine on its own...

No, don't use them, they used to be pci specific intended for dma
setting/mapping but are deprecated now which I didn't realize.

If you don't mind one extra branching in each read/write, then OK :).
Here you know it's MMIO space I think, so pci_ioremap_map+readl/writel
would be more appropriate and faster. But it's your call.
