Right, these properties are specific to a platform. In some of the platforms
like K2G (BAR0 is reserved i.e it is used to map PCIe app registers and cannot
be used by pci_epf_test. In such cases we should use a BAR other than BAR0).

hmm..

We can have quirk in pci_epc, something like below

struct pci_epc {
.
.
unsigned int quirks;
.
.
};

#define EPC_QUIRKS_NO_LINKUP_NOTIFIER BIT(0)
#define EPC_QUIRKS_BAR0_RESERVED BIT(1)
#define EPC_QUIRKS_BAR1_RESERVED BIT(2)
#define EPC_QUIRKS_BAR2_RESERVED BIT(3)
#define EPC_QUIRKS_BAR3_RESERVED BIT(4)
#define EPC_QUIRKS_BAR4_RESERVED BIT(5)
#define EPC_QUIRKS_BAR5_RESERVED BIT(6)

The controller driver can set the appropriate quirks
epc->quirks |= EPC_QUIRKS_NO_LINKUP_NOTIFIER | EPC_QUIRKS_BAR0_RESERVED;

Then pci-epf-test driver can checks the quirks to see the supported EPC features.

Does something like above looks okay to you?

Thanks
Kishon
