Hello Qiuxu,

Welcome back!  I hope you had a nice rest, and also Happy New Year!

Good to know.  Bjorn was also wondering if this is potentially a sign of
a larger probed with the RCiEP support.

I took your suggestion and came up with the following:

  Function rcec_assoc_rciep() incorrectly used "rciep->devfn" (a single
  byte encoding the device and function number) as the device number to
  check whether the corresponding bit was set in the RCiEPBitmap of the
  RCEC (Root Complex Event Collector) while enumerating over each bit of
  the RCiEPBitmap.

  As per the PCI Express Base Specification, Revision 5.0, Version 1.0,
  Section 7.9.10.2, "Association Bitmap for RCiEPs", p. 935, only needs to
  use a device number to check whether the corresponding bit was set in
  the RCiEPBitmap.

  Fix rcec_assoc_rciep() using the PCI_SLOT() macro and convert the value
  of "rciep->devfn" to a device number to ensure that the RCiEP devices
  are associated with the RCEC are linked when the RCEC is enumerated.

Using either of the following as the subject:

  PCI/RCEC: Use device number to check RCiEPBitmap of RCEC
  PCI/RCEC: Fix RCiEP capable devices RCEC association

What do you think?  Also, feel free to change whatever you see fit, of
course, as tis is only a suggestion.

Krzysztof
