Hi All,

Great news! :-)

Michael Ellerman will add the pci.c patch to the official kernel source code.

Cheers,

his original mail but haven't got to it.

If thats the way you want to go... We still have an out-of-tree patch we need to apply, which I think is the right place for this. In fact I submitted some patches at the end of last year with a cleaned up version (including the above patch). Here are links:

https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/854270/
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/854269/
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/854271/
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/854268/

These seem to have been missed somehow. (I intended them for 4.16)

If these are suitable, the only thing left would be the pasemi i2c bus patch, which keeps getting ignored by the i2c guys.

Darren
