Considering this I think it's a good idea to move that creation of the
device link into drivers/pci/pci-acpi.c and store a bit in struct
pci_device to indicate it's a tunneled port.

Then 'thunderbolt' can look for this directly instead of walking all
the FW nodes.

pcie_bandwidth_available() can just look at the tunneled port bit
instead of the existence of the device link.

pci_is_thunderbolt_attached() should already be doing exactly what
you want to achieve with the new bit.  It tells you whether a PCI
device is behind a Thunderbolt tunnel.  So I don't think a new bit
is actually needed.

It's only for a device connected to an Intel TBT3 controller though; it
won't apply to USB4.

Time to resurrect this patch here...? :)

That thought crossed my mind, but I don't think it's actually correct.
That's the major reason I didn't resurrect that series.

The PCIe topology looks like this:

├─PCIe tunneled root port
|  └─PCIe bridge/switch (TBT3 or USB4 hub)
|    └─PCIe device
└─PCIe root port
  └─USB 4 Router

In this topology the USB4 PCIe class device is going to be the USB4 router. This *isn't* a tunneled device.

The two problematic devices are going to be that PCIe bridge (TBT or USB4 hub) and PCIe tunneled root port. Looking for the class is going to mark the wrong device for the "USB 4 Router".

I looked through the USB4 spec again and I don't see any way that such a port can be distinguished.

I feel the correct way to identify it is via the relationship specified in ACPI.

FWIW I also think that that all the kernel users of pci_is_thunderbolt_attached() *should* be using dev_is_removable().

amdgpu is going to be switching over to this as one of the fixes I mentioned for that bug:

If nouveau and radeon also switch over we can probably should axe the function pci_is_thunderbolt_attached() all together.

If you guys agree I can send out a separate series for this to go after the amdgpu patch merges.
