I would like to get to that, but the path on x86 is a bit messier. Ideally the order looks something like this: - enumerate the tree (BUS_PASS_BUS) - reserve fixed-resources (things like acpi_sysres) (BUS_PASS_RESOURCE) - reserve existing resources that could be moved or disabled if their is a conflict (think PCI BARs programmed by firmware and/or doing an initial pass of BARs) - interrupt controllers (may need resources) (BUS_PASS_INTR) - timers (probably need resources, need interrupts) (BUS_PASS_TIMER) Then all the rest. However, it ends up a bit messier on x86 at least. I have a WIP to at least start doing BUS_PASS_BUS for x86, but I found that I really need some ACPI bits to probe before the ACPI 'pcib' driver, so I've ended up with a kind of 'BUS_PASS_PREBUS' for acpi0, and even then it turns out that in some cases we need more granularity than just 'BUS_PASS_xxx'. SI_ORDER_* with ORDERED will not help as all the drivers are registered at SI_SUB_DRIVERS during boot (which is when the SI_ORDER_* applies), but the device tree is enumerated and attached at SI_SUB_CONFIGURE. And yes, the AP startup stuff is a precursor for this. -- John Baldwin _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
