Yes, I was thinking of pci_read_config_word(), etc. They're used by the core during enumeration and occasionally by drivers, and both cases already pay attention to PM. I think we have a few holes in the runtime sysfs area, but I think it's reasonable to deal with those in the callers. So I don't think those need to actually *do* anything with PM status, although it might be interesting to add some (optional) checking there. George Cherian is turning up some issues in this area because he has a root port that reports errors with an exception instead of silently synthesizing all ones data like most hardware does .
