Here's a summary of the current state of the Linux PCI subsystem, as of

If the information in here is incorrect, or anyone knows of any
outstanding issues not listed here, please let me know.

List of outstanding regressions from 2.6.22:
- none known.

List of outstanding regressions from older kernel versions:
- none known.
What about ?
That's not a regression, right? Tt's probably never worked for that
kind of box :)
I think the pci bus patches that are pending from Jeff Garzik should fix
up these issues. They are in one of his trees, and in the -mm release,
if you are able to test those.
jgarzik/misc-2.6.git#pciseg has my only outstanding PCI stuff, which is a small x86[-64] PCI domain support patch. Mostly unrelated to the thread at hand, alas, even though it was touching that area.

I need to a few changes required by Andi, who made several good points, then the PCI domains thing should be ready for upstream. I don't care much who merges it, you, Andi or me.

I'll take it, as I guess it should go through me, Andi is going to have
enough merge issues for 2.6.24 :)

I'll add them to my tree later today.

Please don't pull 'pciseg' just yet... it needs the fixes Andi pointed out, namely, it should be turned on by default in x86 / x86-64 platform Kconfig, and have a boot-time method of disabling it.
