Thanks for pointing this out! I will send v2 to fix this.

There are two "bus" variables in this function. "bus" is a "struct pci_bus" from the PCI layer. "hbus" is a "struct hv_pcibus_device" defined in pci-hyperv.

The parameter passed to set_dev_node is &dev->dev, the dev is enumerated from bus->devices. So dev (struct pci_dev) is from the PCI layer, this function sets the node on the device that will be used to probe and load its corresponding driver.

There is a separate list of hbus->children. It's represents pci-hyperv's view of devices on its bus. pci-hyperv presents those devices to PCI layer when pci_scan_child_bus() is called.
