[PATCH RFC] PCI: allow P2P bridge windows starting at PCI bus address zero

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

This patch is for discussion.  I didn't include a Signed-off-by line
because I suspect the patch is incomplete as it stands.

cd81e1ea1a4c added checks that prevent us from using P2P bridge windows
that start at PCI bus address zero.  The reason was to "prevent us from
overwriting resources that are unassigned."

But I don't think generic code should disallow address zero in either BARs or
bridge windows, so I think that commit was a mistake.

Windows at bus address zero are legal and likely to exist on machines with an
offset between bus addresses and CPU addresses.  For example, in the following
hypothetical scenario, the bridge at 00:01.0 has a window at bus address zero
and the device at 01:00.0 has a BAR at bus address zero, and I think both are
perfectly valid:

    PCI host bridge to bus 0000:00
    pci_bus 0000:00: root bus resource [mem 0x100000000-0x1ffffffff] (bus address [0x00000000-0xffffffff])
    pci 0000:00:01.0: PCI bridge to [bus 01]
    pci 0000:00:01.0:   bridge window [mem 0x100000000-0x100ffffff]
    pci 0000:01:00.0: reg 10: [mem 0x100000000-0x100ffffff]

I don't want to reintroduce whatever bug cd81e1ea1a4c fixed.  So please comment
on whether my reasoning above is correct and what problem would be caused if we
applied the following patch.
