Yes, I think there are a lot of assumptions here. IIUC the sequence you
expect this to work is:

1) EP system (ie system where the EP is located) is brought up and EP is
configured (inclusive of MSI)
2) host boots and enumerates PCI devices (which includes the EP)
3) host EP PCI driver probes and configure MSI, etc
4) EP system runs EP function test and to understand what the host
system enabled on the endpoint (eg PCI EP test function driver using
MSIs) you rely on capabilities registers host system settings that
are reflected in the EP registers

Is my understanding correct ?

So basically the PCI EP test function works as software IP whose
behaviour is controlled by the EP system kernel/userspace.

There are obvious syncronization assumptions here - the whole thing
is racy by design (inclusive of the stepwise boot sequence above)
but if my understanding above is correct I think this patch is the
right way of handling it.

I wonder how this is going to work if the EP function BARs map a real
device (eg USB), please let me know your thoughts on that.

Thanks,
Lorenzo
