[v1 PATCH 1/1] PCI: Add AMD8111 PCI Bridge PCI Device ID

Post by Harry Cia » Wed, 11 Mar 2009 10:40:07


Hi Greg,

Please see my answers below.


Greg KH :

This new id is to be used in the newly added edac driver amd8111_edac.c
that I have posted to the mailing list on March 9th, it is used to probe
the PCI Bridge Controller on AMD8111 chip.

Ok, I see for the time being I had better define this new id as a macro
in amd8111_edac.c.

And I am a little curious that do you mean that pci_ids.h maintainer
would have to track how many times a new id have been requested to
decide if to merge it into the file or not?

Thank you very much for your comments!

Best regards,

Harry

So that patch depends on this one? You should just use the device id
within your driver, no need to modify this header file at all.


Yes, as a permanent solution.


No, someone would notice it and submit such a patch.

thanks,
