I don't understand this. Here's the whole function (with this patch
static inline bool iproc_pcie_device_is_valid(struct iproc_pcie *pcie,
unsigned int busnum,
unsigned int slot,
unsigned int fn)
if ((pcie->type == IPROC_PCIE_PAXC || busnum == 0) && slot > 0)
/* PAXC can only support limited number of functions */
if (pcie->type == IPROC_PCIE_PAXC && fn >= MAX_NUM_PAXC_PF)
- On bus 00, device 0 is the only valid device. That seems
plausible because the devices on bus 00 are probably built-in to
- On PAXC-based systems, device 0 is the only valid device on *any*
bus. Is that really true? If there's any way to add a plug-in
card, this seems overly restrictive.
PCIe devices are generally all device 0, but this would mean you
cannot plug in a PCIe-to-PCI bridge leading to a PCI device with a
non-zero device number.
I think it also means you could not plug in a PCIe device with ARI
enabled, because I think we store the upper 5 bits of the 8-bit
ARI function number in the PCI_SLOT bits.
- On PAXC-based systems, only functions 0, 1, 2, and 3 are valid
anywhere in the hierarchy. I think this again restricts what what
cards can be plugged in.
If iProc only supports devices built directly into the SoC, maybe
these constraints are valid. But if it supports any plugin or
external devices, they don't seem to make sense.
Also, is it the case that an iProc root bus is always bus number zero?
That's certainly not the case for many other host controllers, but
maybe you only have one possible host controller per system and the
base number is not programmable.
