"XHCI tunneling" is an unfamiliar term for me. Are we talking about a XHCI controller inside a USB4/thunderbold dock here which is connected to the laptop over PCIe tunneling over thunderbolt ?

Or do you mean the XHCI controller inside the laptop which is connected to a USB4/thunderbolt capable Type-C port which is used when that port is in USB3/USB2 mode ?

As long as the XHCI controller is inside the laptop (and not in the dock), presumably you can identify it by say a set of PCI device-ids of the "tunneling" XHCI controllers on affected AMD platforms. So you could then still call pci_d3cold_disable() from the XHCI driver on only those controllers.

Note I'm not saying this is the best solution. I'm just trying to understand what you mean with " the PCIe root port that is used for XHCI tunneling" .

I also see that Rafael has said elsewhere in the thread that he needs to think a bit about how to best handle this ...
