Subject[PATCH] PCI: Support SRIOV on Legacy EndPoint device
From: Kelly Zytaruk <>

It is not neccessary to check for PCI_EXP_TYPE in sriov_init(). There appears to be no reason for the check.

Some AMD GPUs have hardware support for grapics SRIOV.
If the GPU has a display output then the GPU needs to support Legacy VGA operation.
If CLASS_CODE = VGA then the device should have a Port Type = Legacy EndPoint.
Therefore in order to enable SRIOV on a GPU with a display output, LEGACY_END_POINT is supported as a valid Port Type by removing the check for Port Type.

Patch is also logged in Bugzilla #112221
