sorry ,i ignore it!! it is really a lite tool:) ,but it seems that
/dev/devctl does not present the function to write to the devctl,then
I think it is impossible to  give order to disable or enable the pci
slots without making changes.
static struct cdevsw dev_cdevsw = {
	.d_version =	D_VERSION,
	.d_flags =	D_NEEDGIANT,
	.d_open =	devopen,
	.d_close =	devclose,
	.d_read =	devread,
	.d_ioctl =	devioctl,
	.d_poll =	devpoll,
	.d_name =	"devctl",
	.d_maj =	CDEV_MAJOR,

 i need the function to cooperated with the hardware to detect the
present of  card ,and  enumerate the bus , and add it to the bus ,
then it is devd that should come into play( like the sbin/hotplug in

i mean the enumeration  way . and the trickes to talk with the hotplug bridge.
BTW pci_init()  is the start point for PCI enumeration in linux. The
way to add the device to the lists

i will begin with the fake way here ,then give support to pciexpress
native hotplug .there is common register interface for pci e hotplug
first ,i will not change the source ,just add a module.

we who r about to die,salute u!
