Don't use busdev->sysdata in architecture specific code, it belongs to the
host bridge driver with the new model. For ACPI you don't have a host bridge
driver, but it's better to keep these separate.

The segment is always the same as the domain number, so just use that.
The node and companion members here can get added to struct pci_host_bridge.

The reason why I put segment field to struct pci_controller is to
initialize domain_nr of struct pci_bus being in pci_create_root_bus(),
domain_nr can be used later on though. Correct me I am wrong.

Honestly I do not see the way to create root bus without e.g.
sysdata.segment here.

See the patches that Liviu and Lorenzo have been posting recently. This
should be straightforward in 3.19.

Hi Arnd,

I have been looking into patch (if that what you meant) :
[RFC PATCH v2] drivers: pci: move PCI domain assignment to generic PCI code

This is not enough for me since it gets domain number from its OF parent or just uses sequential increased domain number. In my case, I do not have parent so I need to get segment from ACPI node which is not available there.

On the other hand, patch set posted by Wang Yijing:
[RFC PATCH 00/16] Refine PCI host bridge scan interfaces
tends to solve that issue.

What would be the best way for this patch, keep busdev->sysdata usage and rebase once Wang Yijing patch set will be accepted?
