Thanks, this is good. I'd really like a short comment in the code as well, because this sort of link-up check tends to get copied to new drivers where it shouldn't be used, e.g., something like this: /* * If the link goes down after we check for link-up, nothing bad * happens but the config access times out. */ > Signed-off-by: Pali Rohár <p...@kernel.org> > > --- > Changes in V2: > * Update commit message, mention that this is optimization > --- > drivers/pci/controller/pci-aardvark.c | 3 +++ > 1 file changed, 3 insertions(+) > > diff --git a/drivers/pci/controller/pci-aardvark.c > b/drivers/pci/controller/pci-aardvark.c > index 90ff291c24f0..53a4cfd7d377 100644 > --- a/drivers/pci/controller/pci-aardvark.c > +++ b/drivers/pci/controller/pci-aardvark.c > @@ -644,6 +644,9 @@ static bool advk_pcie_valid_device(struct advk_pcie > *pcie, struct pci_bus *bus, > if ((bus->number == pcie->root_bus_nr) && PCI_SLOT(devfn) != 0) > return false; > > + if (bus->number != pcie->root_bus_nr && !advk_pcie_link_up(pcie)) > + return false; > + > return true; > } > > -- > 2.20.1 >
