OK, one piece is missing.  We may need to evaluate _OSC after handling each
event to let the platform know the status.

Can you please check if the appended patch makes any difference (with the
previous fix applied, of course)?

If fact, it is two patches combined.  One of them optimizes enable_slot()
slightly and the other adds the missing _OSC evaluation.

Thanks,
Rafael

s/_OSC/_OST/ (What the heck?)

But the patch should be OK. :-)

Better, still double the output:

$ dmesg | tail --lines=1

Here's another interesting stat:

Well, this is the bridge sizing I talked about previously.  We still get
apparently spurious bus check/device check events and they trigger bridge
scans.

I'm not sure what to do about that and I wonder whether or not this is
reproducible on any other machines you can test.

Can you please change dbg() to pr_info() under ACPI_NOTIFY_BUS_CHECK and
ACPI_NOTIFY_DEVICE_CHECK in hotplug_event() (acpiphp_glue.c), grep the boot
dmesg log for "check notify" and send the result?  I'm wondering what's
going on there.

Thanks,
Rafael

The line count is pre-pended to each line.  73 times for the first two

Can't we determine that nothing has changed and avoid re-printing?  I
have a hard time believing this system is all that unique.  Thanks,

Well, that's better than before.

I'll prepare "official" patches with the last changes then too.

Can you check how many times the lines above are repeated?

Tomorrow (or even later) works just fine for me. :-)

So I guess the PEXn things are PCIe ports and we get two notifications
for each of them, so everything below them gets rescanned.

I've just talked to Bjorn about that and we don't seem to have a good idea
how to handle this.  The notifies shouldn't be there, but we kind of have
to handle them.

I guess we could suppress the output from repeated bridge scans.  Alternatively,
we could just blacklist this particular system somehow if the problem is
specific to it.

Thanks,
Rafael

What I said was "We aren't going to be able to get rid of the
notifications, but we can probably figure out how to clean up some of
the output."  I don't think there's anything *wrong* with the
notifications themselves, and as far as I know, there's nothing in the
spec that limits how many notifications the platform can send.

I'm opposed to blacklisting in principle because this doesn't sound
like a platform defect.  And I think we pretty much have to
re-enumerate for each Device Check, because that's what the spec tells
us to do.

My goal is for PCI to print stuff only for significant events, when we
discover something new, or when we change something (BAR, bridge
window, etc.)  A hot-plug event, e.g., a Device Check, is arguably
significant all by itself, but that's in ACPI, and it sounds like we
only have a dbg() there now.  The repeated PCI bridge info seems like
it's useless.  I've looked at cleaning up some of that in the past,
but it wasn't trivial and it wasn't urgent enough at the time.  But it
sure sounds urgent now.

Alex, would you mind collecting the full dmesg or console log (with
"debug ignore_loglevel") and "lspci -vv" output and attaching them to
a bugzilla?  Keep the hotplug_event() pr_info() change so we have more
clues about what triggers things.  This seems like an interesting
situation, and there might be other things we can learn from it.  It
looks like the "hotplug settings" output is probably more than is
necessary also.

One would think that it wouldn't send notifications if nothing changed,
however.

I'm not sure about that.  Sending notifications without a reason is not a good
practice at least, even if the spec does't forbid it directly.

There are many things for which there are no "don't do that" statements in the
spec which nevertheless may be regarded as incorrect behavior.  Therefore I'm
opposed to the "the spec doesn't forbid that openly, so it has to be OK to do it"
way of thinking.  Sorry.

Yes, it is.

That can be changed to dev_dbg() I think and no one will really miss it. :-)

The patches follow as [1/2] and [2/2].  The change in enable_slot() is
literally the same, but the _OST patch is somewhat different, although the
changes mostly affect the eject code path and the notifies that we don't
actually handle, so they should not matter on your machine.
