... and I wrote the ia64-specific bits to access extended PCI config space
through the SAL PCI accessors.  See PCI_SAL_EXT_ADDRESS().

Various PCIe features are in the process of being added.  It all depends
what you mean when you say "supported".

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
