Hi Ram,

Thanks for the pointer. I did some more experiments and found that
the card does support 64k page size, but the PCI_SRIOV_SYS_PGSIZE was
set to default 4k when we do the query and check resource_size().

You were correct, the resource_size() has to come up with 64k on 64k
PAGE_SIZE system. We should not change that check. I was able to
get a working solution by setting PCI_SRIOV_SYS_PGSIZE to 64k before
we do the query.

This was the case in the original code before you moved these to
sriov_enable(). If it is ok to leave the SYS_PGSIZE setting in
sriov_init(), then I have the following fix that works for me.

Please review and let me know your comments.


pci: set pci sriov page size before reading sriov bar

For an SRIOV device, PCI_SRIOV_SYS_PGSIZE should be set before
the PCI_SRIOV_BAR is queried. The sys pagesize defaults to 4k,
so this change is required on powerpc box with 64k base page size.

This is a regression caused due to moving SRIOV init to sriov_enable().
