Re: pchb@acpi again


in acpi_pci.c, why do you need to skip the check for ACPI_VALID_ADR?
does the ACPI info on ia64 not have that flag set when it should?

should the x86 ports be able to use this driver?
I tried adding "pchb* at acpi?" on amd64, but it isn't found.
I guess the reason for that is in your patch, you've got
"attach pchb at acpinodebus with pchb_acpi" which "pchb* at acpi?"
doesn't match.  I'm not sure why this is different from other things
which are defined as "at acpinodebus" but referenced in config files
as "at acpi?".

(and I realize that if it did attach then I would have to do something
to prevent the normal pchb driver from attaching as well, but I'm not
even getting to that yet.)
