Hi Suravee,

Correct. Parameters are probably different, but it is internal to your driver so
you can do whatever you want there.

How did that work with my v9 patchset? How does it work for other MSI-aware platforms?
Are they not using pci_scan_child_bus()?

Bjorn can comment here, but there seems to be a long standing desire to make
pci_scan_root_bus() more useful. If your change is generic enough, how about proposing
a patch for pci_scan_root_bus() and see what feedback you get.

Judging by the complete silence I'm getting on my change (patch 9/10) of the same function,
we might be lucky enough and no one will notice ;) (Bjorn, I'm kidding and I know you
are busy).

Best regards,
Liviu
