Simple typos, don't repost until there's more substantive feedback.

s/implementation PCIe endpoint function/implementation of PCIe endpoint functions/
s/lecacy/legacy/ (What does "legacy" mean?  Is there a spec for this?)

I guess "legacy virtio" devices need not implement custom PCIe
capabilities, but "modern virtio" devices must implement them?

Capitalize "Endpoint framework" consistently; sometimes it's
"Endpoint", other times it's "endpoint".

Typically the header includes would be alphabetized if possible.

I know you probably don't have any way to use dev_err(), but this
message really needs some context, like a driver name and instance or


What makes this a "legacy cfg BAR"?  Is there some spec that covers
virtio BAR usage?

Some of the function descriptions end with a period (".") and others
don't.  Please figure out what the most common style is and use that

s/spact/space/ ?

Also below.

IIRC some previous messages started with a capital letter.  Please
make them all consistent.

I guess this function returns either a negative error code or the
value 1?  That seems sort of weird (I think "negative error code or
*zero* is more typical), but maybe you're following some convention?

Alpha order if possible
