multiple separate pci bridges ...

Synergy Microsystems has designs with the Discovery 2 as well. We worked
around this by setting pci_assign_all_busses to true and with modifications
to the platform specific config cycle routines (only included one as an
gemini_pcibios_bus_fixup(struct pci_dev *dev, struct pci_controller *hose)
return ((dev->bus->number == hose->first_busno) ? 0 : dev->bus->number);
gemini_pcibios_read_config_byte(struct pci_dev *dev, int offset, u8 *val)
unsigned long reg;
unsigned int addr;
struct pci_controller *hose;
hose = dev->sysdata;
bus = gemini_pcibios_bus_fixup(dev, hose);
addr = pci_config_type1_addr(bus, dev->devfn, offset & ~(0x3));
reg = config_read(addr, hose->cfg_addr, hose->cfg_data);
*val = ((reg >> ((offset & 0x3) << 3)) & 0xff);
It is also necessary to set the first and last bus number fields of the
hose structure correctly in your platform specific code. These will get
over written later by the PCI driver code, and in our case, to the same
values. Our platform specific code does a preliminary scan of the PCI
buses to find the first and last bus numbers.
This will also work when a PtP bridge is located on either of the primary
PCI buses of the Discovery. We're using a derivative of a 2.4.19 kernel.
I'm open to a better approach...
