What's the local bus?  The ASIX9100 (for which Google doesn't find any
details) would have a PCI interface on the primary (upstream) side.
What's the local bus on the secondary (downstream) side?  Below you
mention "PCI bridge", which normally means both the primary and
secondary sides are PCI buses.

If the local bus is not PCI, I guess the ASIX9100 would look to the OS
like an endpoint, i.e., PCI_HEADER_TYPE_NORMAL, and the ASIX9100
driver would handle any "bridge" functionality completely internally?

Maybe Herve's work at
would be relevant?
