Description Matthew Wilcox 2004-02-04 18:59:43 UTC

Description of problem:
There are actually several bugs in the acpiphp driver,
but I'll limit myself to one here.

The acpiphp driver has no understanding of PCI-PCI bridges and
will merrily allocate IO resources already assigned to a bridge
to another device on the same bus.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On an rx4640, plug a quad-port tulip card into slot 3 and a tg3
card into slot 4.
2. echo 0 >/proc/bus/pci/slots/4/power
3. echo 1 >/proc/bus/pci/slots/4/power

Actual Results:  Machine reboots

Expected Results:  Card should have been readded.

The tulip cards behind the bridge are all assigned addresses in
the 0xc010xxxx range, and the acpiphp driver only notices these
resources, instead of paying attention to the PCI-PCI bridge
resources.  So when it comes to add the tg3 card, it looks for
some available address space, and allocates 0xc000'0000 to
0xc001'0000 to it.  Splat.

I'm planning on working on this bug myself, filing it now for
tracking purposes.

Closing as WONTFIX as RHEL3 series will only be taking critical fixes.
