Bjorn Helgaas created a patch for making PCI_SCAN_ALL_PCIE_DEVS work for
Root Ports as well as Downstream. Previously PCI_SCAN_ALL_PCIE_DEVS (set
by quirks or the "pci=pcie_scan_all"
kernel parameter) only affected Switch Downstream Ports, not Root Ports.
The problem is, that we have to add always the boot argument
"pci=pcie_scan_all" for using Bjorn's improvements. Without the boot
argument "pci=pcie_scan_all", the kernel doesn't boot on P.A. Semi
boards with SB600 chipset (SB600 chipset is connected via PCIe x4 to the
P.A. Semi’s PA6T-1682M System-on-a-Chip) because the kernel can't find
any drives connected to the SB600 anymore. Olof Johansson has created a
patch for executing "pci=pcie_scan_all" automatically on P.A. Semi
boards. With his patch, we don't need to add 'pci=pcie_scan_all' to the
kernel boot arguments anymore.
