Re: [PATCH 0/4] PCI: fix cardbus and sriov regressions

Hello RP,

unfortunately i noticed the discussion on linux-kernel ML a bit late, as i did
not subscribe it due to the traffic.

Did you get further with the unusual alignment?

Even if i did not see any problems (i did not test the CardBus slot but only
the sdhci_pci), i wonder if the register layout of some adapters would get
into problems with this alignment shown below?!?


ps. pls put me in CC in the next patch servies. tnx
