Ben,

looks like PCIe port driver does call pci_enable_device AND pci_set_master()

| int pcie_port_device_register(struct pci_dev *dev)
| {
| int status, capabilities, i, nr_service;
| int irqs[PCIE_PORT_DEVICE_MAXSERVICES];
|
| /* Enable PCI Express port device */
| status = pci_enable_device(dev);
| if (status)
| return status;
|
| /* Get and check PCI Express port services */
| capabilities = get_port_device_capability(dev);
| if (!capabilities)
| return 0;
|
| pci_set_master(dev);

so how come that pci_set_master is not called for powerpc?

Can you send out lspci -vvxxx with current linus-tree and v3.11?

Yinghai
