Subject[PATCH 0/2] Silent PCI realignment messages during boot
This patchset introduces PCI_DEV_FLAGS_QUIET_PCI_REALIGN attribute in
pci_dev_flags which informs the pci subsystem to suppress all realignment

Powerpc has aligned all of its PCI resources to its PAGE_SIZE, and this
feature can be easily used on any other arch through the __weak
pcibios_default_alignment() interface.

However, since all PCI resources will be now realigned during boot, the
following messages will not only flood the system logs, but can be inter-
preted as a false positive for total PCI failure on the system.

[root@system user]# dmesg | grep -i disabling
[ 0.692270] pci 0000:00:00.0: Disabling memory decoding and releasing memory resources
[ 0.692324] pci 0000:00:00.0: disabling bridge mem windows
[ 0.729134] pci 0001:00:00.0: Disabling memory decoding and releasing memory resources
[ 0.737352] pci 0001:00:00.0: disabling bridge mem windows
[ 0.776295] pci 0002:00:00.0: Disabling memory decoding and releasing memory resources
[ 0.784509] pci 0002:00:00.0: disabling bridge mem windows
... and goes on for all PCI devices ...

Thus, this patchset provides a way for drivers to silent these messages if
the PCI_DEV_FLAGS_QUIET_PCI_REALIGN is turned on. Moreover, it also
tweaks this flag during boot on powerpc.
