Looking into pci bridge scanning for wlix. If I read linooks driver/pci/probe.c correctly, it’s actually the OS that gives the bridge its “PCI device number” that is later used to access it?! That means I need to either choose arbitrary numbers for the scanning (but I don’t know what sort of restrictions exist on them…) or emulate what linooks does, which requires a lot more effort. Hmpf. More probing required.

    • I’ll write a longer entry about it once I get it to work. In a nut shell, I’m talking about the code that scans the PCI bus for wlix, wli’s operating system, and specifically about how to handle devices known as “PCI bridges”.

      • I heard about wlix, but briefly. That goes to say that I haven’t irc for a while now.
