Re: [Xen-devel] Bug for Xen-3.3.0-rc2: libpci read error. No emulation.

I found that current FLR logic seems to cause hot-plug issue.

On current implementation, hot-plug is done as follows.

    1. xend sends 'pci-ins' command to ioemu via xenstore.

    2. ioemu creates pass-through device and raises SCI to Guest
       OS. Guest OS loads device driver, and device driver initializes
       the hot-plugged device.

    3. xend does FLR(include bus reset and acpi reset).

Actually 2 and 3 are parallel. But it is possible xend does FLR after
device driver initialize the device. This cause hot-plug issue.

To fix the issue, xend should do FLR before sending 'pci-ins' command.

I will take more than a week holiday starting tomorrow. I will not be
able to reply the mail.
