Are you saying the config space in the video device?

No, I am saying in a new BAR, or at some magic offset of an existing

As I mentioned previously, the IGD guy told me we have no any unused a offset or BAR in the config space.

And guy who are responsible for the native driver seems not be accept to extend some magic offset of an existing MMIO BAR.

In addition I think in a short time its not possible to migrate i440fx to q35 as a PCIe machine of xen. So could we do this step by step:

#1 phase: We just cover current qemu-xen implementation based on i44fx, so still provide that pseudo ISA bridge at 00:1f.0 as we already did.

#2 phase: Now, we will choose a capability ID that won't be conflicting with others. To do this properly, we need to get one from PCI SIG group. To have this workable and consistently validated, this method shouldn't be virt specific. Then native driver should use the same method. So when xen work on q35 PCIe machine, we can walk this way.


Any comments to address this in xen case?
