This patch set brings in error handling support for DPC
The current implementation of AER and error message broadcasting to
EP driver is tightly coupled and limited to AER service driver.
It is important to factor out broadcasting and other link handling
callbacks. So that not only when AER gets triggered, but also when DPC
triggered (for e.g. ERR_FATAL), callbacks are handled appropriately.
DPC should enumerate the devices after recovering the link, which is
achieved by implementing error_resume callback.
The main point of this series is to call the driver error handling
callbacks (error_detected(), mmio_enabled(), slot_reset(), etc.) when
DPC events occur. We've always called them for AER events, but prior
to this series, we didn't call them for DPC events.
That's a good thing -- we should treat DPC events as much like AER
events as possible.
This series does make it more obvious that there's still a big
difference between AER and DPC handling -- for DPC, we remove and
re-enumerate all the devices, but we don't for AER.
That difference has been there since the beginning of DPC, so it has
nothing to do with *this* series EXCEPT for the fact that it really
complicates the logic you're adding to reset_link() and
We ought to be able to simplify that somehow because the only real
difference between AER and DPC should be that DPC automatically
disables the link and AER does it in software.
Ok, so here is slight modification which I will do and will post final
1) do not enumerate the devices after link is up (since AER does not do
2) remove the call to pci_stop_and_remove_bus_device(dev); because now
DPC also makes use of driver's callback. (like AER does)
above 2 changes should make behavior of DPC identical to AER.
