Subject[PATCH 0/1] DRAFT: New Microsemi PCI Switch Management Driver
Hi,

This is a continuation of the RFC we posted lasted month [1] which
proposes a management driver for Microsemi's Switchtec line of PCI
switches. This hardware is still looking to be used in the Open
Compute Platform

To make this entirely clear: the Switchtec products are compliant
with the PCI specifications and are supported today with the standard
in-kernel driver. However, these devices also expose a management endpoint
on a separate PCI function address which can be used to perform some
advanced operations. This is a driver for that function. See the patch
for more information.

Since the RFC, we've made the changes requested by Greg Kroah-Hartman
and Keith Busch, and we've also fleshed out a number of features. We've
added a couple of IOCTLs and sysfs attributes which are documented in
the patch. Significant work has also been done on the userspace tool
which is available under a GPL license at [2]. We've also had testing
done by some of the interested parties.

We hope to see this work included in either 4.11 or 4.12 assuming a
smooth review process.

The patch is based off of the v4.9 release.

Thanks for your review,

Logan

Changes since RFC:

* Fixed incorrect use of the drive model as pointed out by Greg
Kroah-Hartman
* Used devm functions as suggested by Keith Busch
* Added a handful of sysfs attributes to the switchtec class
* Added a handful of IOCTLs to the switchtec device
* A number of miscelaneous bug fixes
