See the proposed Marvell PCIe driver and Tegra PCIe driver:
Both Thierry (doing the Tegra PCIe driver) and myself (doing the
Marvell PCIe driver) already have fairly long patch series to add
support for the PCIe interfaces in our respective SoC. In order to ease
the process of getting those merged, we'd like to get some of the
base functions we depend on to be merged first, so that our patch
series become a bit smaller and therefore more manageable. My Marvell
PCIe patch series already has 32 patches (including the ones we are
currently discussing), and I will need even more patches for the
upcoming fourth version (due to additional comments made during the
review of the third version of the patch set).
So, it would really be helpful if this base infrastructure, for which
users already exist in the form of submitted patches, that have already
gone through multiple iterations, could be merged.
