Subject[V5 PATCH 0/2] Introduce ACPI support for ahci_platform driver
This patch series introduce ACPI support for AHCI platform driver.
Existing ACPI support for AHCI assumes the device controller is a PCI device.
Since there is no ACPI _CID for generic AHCI controller, the driver
could not use it for matching devices. Therefore, this patch introduces
a mechanism for drivers to match devices using ACPI _CLS method.
_CLS contains PCI-defined class-code.

This patch series also modifies ACPI modalias to add class-code to the
exisiting format, which currently only uses _HID and _CIDs. This is required
to support loadable modules w/ _CLS.

This patch series is rebased from and tested with: acpi-5.1-v9

This topic was discussed earlier here (as part of introducing support for
AMD Seattle SATA controller):

Changes from V4 (
* [1/2] Bug fixed: Reorder the declaration of
struct acpi_pnp_device_id cls in the struct acpi_device_info
(include/acpi/actypes.h) since compatible_id_list must be last one.
* [2/2] Added Acked-by: Tejun Heo <>

Changes from V3 (
* Instead of introducing new structure acpi_device_cls, add cls into
the acpi_device_id, and modify the __acpi_match_device
to also match for cls. (per Mika suggestion.)
* Add loadable module support, which requires changes in ACPI
modalias. (per Mika suggestion.)
* Rebased and tested with acpi-5.1-v9

Changes from V2 (
* Update with review comment from Rafael in patch 1/2
* Rebased and tested with acpi-5.1-v8

Changes from V1 (
* Rebased to 3.19.0-rc2
* Change from acpi_cls in device_driver to acpi_match_cls (Hanjun comment)
* Change the matching logic in acpi_driver_match_device() due to the new
special PRP0001 _HID.
* Simplify the return type of acpi_match_device_cls() to boolean.

Changes from RFC (
* Remove #ifdef and make non-ACPI version of the acpi_match_device_cls
as inline. (per Arnd)
* Simplify logic to retrieve and evaluate _CLS handle. (per Hanjun)
