Subject: [PATCH -next] pci: fix a -Wtype-limits compilation warning
Date: Wed, 18 Dec 2019 12:00:04 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The commit a7d06153eea2 ("PCI: Fix pci_add_dma_alias() bitmask size")
introduced a compilation warning and a potential infinite loop because
it is no longer possible to be self-terminated as u8 is always less than

Fixed it by using u16 for "devfn" in this occasion.
