This is an infrastructure change. When working properly we get the same functionality as now by default.
When configured, Express Root port devices will be visible to guest.
Benefit to Fedora
- Express Root port devices will be visible to guest.
- Enhanced error reporting of assigned devices.
- Enables Native hotplug support.
- Apps (all optional but would be nice if they are done)
How To Test
WHQL + existing PCI tests should cover a lot of functionality.
pcisig.org has pci express specific tests that we can run in a windows guest.
Express Root port devices will be visible to guest.
