Re: Call for testers: new pci code
:After some additional work, I integrated Polakov's new pci code ported
:from FreeBSD 7.2:
:I have tested SMP+IOAPIC, SMP+ICU, UP (there is not improvement in
:IOAPIC in this branch; my boxes just work with the current IOAPIC :)
:CARDBUS and PCCARD is tested on an old Dell laptop.
:I am currently running it on all of my boxes :)
:Though it should be safe to be tested, but I still suggest you to keep
:one copy of your working kernel and module!
:I also suggest to test it with HPET enabled.
:If there are any problems, please post the boot verbose dmesg first :)
Here is the output for a SMP build on my new Phenom-based shuttle test
box, without APIC_IO and with APIC_IO.
With SMP, without APIC_IO (works normally):
With SMP, With APIC_IO (did not work before, does not work now):
With APIC_IO the AHCI device seems to route its interrupt ok.
However, just about everything else is still broken. i.e. NFE,
EHCI, etc... all route to irq 2 and are broken. I guess that
is to be expected at this stage?. It never worked with APIC_IO
before and still doesn't :-)
There is an ACPI entry for the HPET but I don't see any recognition of
it as a clock source.
In anycase, the machine boots without APIC_IO like it always has but
I'm not sure if there is some sort of loader.conf option I need to set
to test the new code or not.
