Just following up since this has been sitting in patchwork for just
over a month now
(https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/linux-pci/list/?series=34034).
I'm just wondering what the expectation is on getting these pulled
into the pci tree? I'm assuming that is the best place for these
patches. Are there any concerns I still need to address or are these
going to be pulled in at some point, and if so is there any ETA on
when that will be?

Thanks.
