Subject[PATCH v8 08/14] PCI/AER: Extend AER error handling to RCECs
From: Jonathan Cameron <>

Currently the kernel does not handle AER errors for Root Complex
integrated End Points (RCiEPs)[0]. These devices sit on a root bus within
the Root Complex (RC). AER handling is performed by a Root Complex Event
Collector (RCEC) [1] which is a effectively a type of RCiEP on the same
root bus.

For an RCEC (technically not a Bridge), error messages "received" from
associated RCiEPs must be enabled for "transmission" in order to cause a
System Error via the Root Control register or (when the Advanced Error
Reporting Capability is present) reporting via the Root Error Command
register and logging in the Root Error Status register and Error Source
Identification register.

In addition to the defined OS level handling of the reset flow for the
associated RCiEPs of an RCEC, it is possible to also have non-native
handling. In that case there is no need to take any actions on the RCEC
because the firmware is responsible for them. This is true where APEI [2]
is used to report the AER errors via a GHES[v2] HEST entry [3] and
relevant AER CPER record [4] and non-native handling is in use.

We effectively end up with two different types of discovery for
purposes of handling AER errors:

1) Normal bus walk - we pass the downstream port above a bus to which
the device is attached and it walks everything below that point.

2) An RCiEP with no visible association with an RCEC as there is no need
to walk devices. In that case, the flow is to just call the callbacks for
the actual device, which in turn references its associated RCEC.

Modify pci_walk_bridge() to handle devices which lack a subordinate bus.
If the device does not then it will call the function on that device
