Thanks for your reply. I'm now getting interrupts like other PCI devices. The
only problem left is that my XHCI PCI express device does not generate an
attach event when inserted. It is only detected if I boot with the device
plugged in. Is it so to understand that PCI express system is not supported?
How much effort would be required to add support for this?
