Now PCI bridges get a bus range number on a system init, basing on currently plugged devices. That's why when one wants to hotplug another bridge, it needs his child bus, which the parent is unable to provide (speaking about virtual device). The suggested workaround is to have vendor-specific capability in Red Hat PCI bridges that contains number of additional bus to reserve (as well as IO/MEM/PREF space limit hints) on BIOS PCI init. So this capability is intented only for pure QEMU->SeaBIOS usage.
Considering all aforesaid, this series is directly connected with QEMU series "Generic PCIE-PCI Bridge". Although the new PCI capability is supposed to contain various limits along with bus number to reserve, now only its full layout is proposed. And only bus_reserve field is used in QEMU and BIOS. Limits usage is still a subject for implementation as now the main goal of this series to provide necessary support from the firmware side to PCIE-PCI bridge hotplug. Changes v3->v4: 1. Use all QEMU PCI capability fields - addresses Michael's comment 2. Changes of the capability layout (QEMU side has the same changes): - change reservation fields types: bus_res - uint32_t, others - uint64_t - interpret -1 value as 'ignore' Changes v2->v3: 1. Merge commit 2 (Red Hat vendor ID) into commit 4 - addresses Marcel's comment, and add Generic PCIE Root Port device ID - addresses Michael's comment. 2. Changes of the capability layout (QEMU side has the same changes): - add 'type' field to distinguish multiple RedHat-specific capabilities - addresses Michael's comment - do not mimiс PCI Config space register layout, but use mutually exclusive differently sized fields for IO and prefetchable memory limits - addresses Laszlo's comment - use defines instead of structure and offsetof - addresses Michael's comment 3. Interpret 'bus_reserve' field as a minimum necessary range to reserve - addresses Gerd's comment 4. pci_find_capability moved to pci.c - addresses Kevin's comment 5. Move capability layout header to src/fw/dev-pci.h - addresses Kevin's comment 6. Add the capability documentation - addresses Michael's comment 7. Add capability length and bus_reserve field sanity checks - addresses Michael's comment Changes v1->v2: 1. New #define for Red Hat vendor added (addresses Konrad's comment). 2. Refactored pci_find_capability function (addresses Marcel's comment). 3. Capability reworked: - data type added; - reserve space in a structure for IO, memory and prefetchable memory limits.
