SubjectRe: [PATCH V3 2/2] PCI: handle CRS returned by device after FLR
Hi Alex,

I'm coming back to work on this.

Your comment here puzzled me.

"Self nak on this one, didn't account for VFs not implementing the first
dword. Thanks,"

I'm trying to add Configuration Request Retry Status (CRS) support to FLR
with this patch.

Basically, the root port will return 0xFFFF0001 only when a config read
request is sent to the vendor ID register and CRS visibility is set.
The SW needs to poll until this special read ID disappears. See the
implementation note on Configuration Request Retry Status in PCIE
specification for details.

pci_bus_read_dev_vendor_id implements this loop for us.

You are saying that there are VFs that do not implement vendor ID register.
Can you give some history on this?
