     pci_configure_bus, pci_conf_hook, pci_conf_interrupt -- perform PCI bus

     #include <dev/pci/pciconf.h>

     pci_configure_bus(pci_chipset_tag_t pc, struct extent *ioext,
         struct extent *memext, struct extent *pmemext, int firstbus,
         int cacheline_size);

     The pci_configure_bus() function configures a PCI bus for use.  This

        Defining bus numbers for all busses on the system,

        Setting the Base Address Registers for all devices,

        Setting up the interrupt line register for all devices,

        Configuring bus latency timers for all devices, and

        Configuring cacheline sizes for all devices.

     In traditional PCs and Alpha systems, the BIOS or firmware takes care of
     this task, but that is not the case for all systems.  pci_configure_bus()
     should be called prior to the autoconfiguration of the bus.

     The pc argument is a machine-dependent tag used to specify the PCI
     chipset to the system.  This should be the same value used with
     pci_make_tag().  The extent arguments define memory extents from which
     the address space for the cards will be taken.  These addresses should be
     in the PCI address space.  The ioext extent is for PCI I/O accesses.  The
     memext extent is for PCI memory accesses that might have side effects.
     I.e., that can not be cached.  The pmemext extent is for PCI memory
     accesses that can be cached.  The pmemext extent will be used for any
     ROMs and any memory regions that are marked as ``prefetchable'' in their
     BAR.  If an implementation does not distinguish between prefetchable and
     non-prefetchable memory, it may pass NULL for pmemext.  In this case,
     prefetchable memory allocations will be made from the non-prefetchable
     region.  The firstbus argument indicates the number of the first bus to
     be configured.  The cacheline_size argument is used to configure the PCI
     Cache Line Size Register; it should be the size, in bytes, of the largest
     D-cache line on the system.

     An implementation may choose to not have full configuration performed by
     pci_configure_bus() on certain PCI devices, such as PCI host bridges or
     PCI bus analyzers which are instantiated as devices on the bus.  In order
     for this to take place, the header <machine/pci_machdep.h> must define
     the __HAVE_PCI_CONF_HOOK symbol (without a value), and a machine-depen-
     dent function pci_conf_hook() (declared in the same header) must be
     defined.  The prototype for this function is

     int pci_conf_hook(pci_chipset_tag_t pc, int bus, int device, int
     function, pcireg_t id)

     In this function, bus, device, and function uniquely identify the item
     being configured; in addition to this, the value of the device's PCI
     identification register is passed in id.  For each device pci_conf_hook()
     can then decide upon the amount of configuration to be performed by
     returning a bitwise inclusive-or of the following flags:

           PCI_CONF_MAP_IO      Configure Base Address Registers that map I/O

           PCI_CONF_MAP_MEM     Configure Base Address Registers that map mem-
                                ory space

           PCI_CONF_MAP_ROM     Configure Expansion ROM Base Address register

           PCI_CONF_ENABLE_IO   Enable I/O space accesses

           PCI_CONF_ENABLE_MEM  Enable memory space accesses

           PCI_CONF_ENABLE_BM   Enable bus mastering

     In addition, PCI_CONF_ALL specifies all of the above.

     One of the functions of pci_configure_bus() is to configure interrupt
     ``line'' information.  This must be done on a machine-dependent basis, so
     a machine-dependent function pci_conf_interrupt() must be defined.  The
     prototype for this function is

     void pci_conf_interrupt(pci_chipset_tag_t pc, int bus, int device, int
     pin, int swiz, int *iline)

     In this function, bus, device, and pin, uniquely identify the item being
     configured.  The swiz argument is a ``swizzle'', a sum of the device num-
     bers of the primary interface of the bridges between the host bridge and
     the current device.  The function is responsible for setting the value of
     iline.  See chapter 9 of the ``PCI-to-PCI Bridge Architecture
     Specification'' for more information on swizzling (also known as inter-
     rupt routing).

     If successful pci_configure_bus() returns 0.  A non-zero return value
     means that the bus was not completely configured for some reason.  A
     description of the failure will be displayed on the console.

     The pci_configure_bus() function is only included in the kernel if the
     kernel is compiled with the PCI_NETBSD_CONFIGURE option enabled.

     The pci_conf_hook() function in evbppc's walnut implementation looks

     pci_conf_hook(pci_chipset_tag_t pc, int bus, int dev, int func,
         pcireg_t id)

             if ((PCI_VENDOR(id) == PCI_VENDOR_IBM &&
                  PCI_PRODUCT(id) == PCI_PRODUCT_IBM_405GP) ||
                 (PCI_VENDOR(id) == PCI_VENDOR_INTEL &&
                  PCI_PRODUCT(id) == PCI_PRODUCT_INTEL_80960_RP)) {
                     /* Don't configure the bridge and PCI probe. */
                     return 0;
             return (PCI_CONF_ALL & ~PCI_CONF_MAP_ROM);

     The pci_conf_interrupt() function in the sandpoint implementation looks

     pci_conf_interrupt(pci_chipset_tag_t pc, int bus, int dev, int pin,
         int swiz, int *iline)
             if (bus == 0) {
                     *iline = dev;
             } else {
                     *iline = 13 + ((swiz + dev + 3) & 3);

     The BeBox has nearly 1GB of PCI I/O memory starting at processor address
     0x81000000 (PCI I/O address 0x01000000), and nearly 1GB of PCI memory
     starting at 0xC0000000 (PCI memory address 0x00000000).  The
     pci_configure_bus() function might be called as follows:

             struct extent *ioext, *memext;
             ioext  = extent_create("pciio",  0x01000000, 0x0fffffff,
                 NULL, 0, EX_NOWAIT);
             memext = extent_create("pcimem", 0x00000000, 0x0fffffff,
                 NULL, 0, EX_NOWAIT);
             pci_configure_bus(0, ioext, memext, NULL);

     Note that this must be called before the PCI bus is attached during auto-

     pci(4), extent(9)

     pci_configure_bus() was added in NetBSD 1.6.
