Most hardware drops writes and returns ~0 on reads if the link is
down. I assume your hardware does something similar, and that should
be enough. You shouldn't have to check whether the link is up.

The hardware might report errors, e.g., via AER, if the link is down.
And we might not not handle those nicely. If we have issues there, we
should find out and fix them.

I see that dwc, altera, rockchip, and xilinx all do check for link up
there, too. I can't remember if they had a legitimate reason, or if I
just missed it.

Thanks, that will make the patches much easier to read.

pci_register_host_bridge() already sets bus->domain_nr for every host
bridge. That path calls of_get_pci_domain_nr() eventually. But I
guess that's too late for your use case, because you have this:

brcm_pcie_probe
brcm_pcie_setup
brcm_pcie_bridge_sw_init_set
if (of_machine_is_compatible("brcm,bcm7278a0")) {
offset = pcie->id ? ... <--- use
pci_scan_root_bus_bridge
pci_register_host_bridge
bus->domain_nr = pci_bus_find_domain_nr <--- available

I guess you haven't added a binding for brcm,bcm7278a0 yet?

I'm not really sure that using the linux,pci-domain DT property is the
best way to distinguish the two controllers. Maybe Rob has an
opinion?
