Nowadays QEMU doesn't have any PCIE-PCI bridge except DMI-PCI i82801b11 bridge, but as DMI is a proprietary Intel bus, it can be used only on x86 targets, besides, it isn't hotpluggable. That is why the goal of this project is to create generic PCIExpress-PCI bridge, which will be able to be used by different target architectures and OSes and the bridge will be natively (in terms of PCIExpress) hotpluggable, which involves SHPC usage. As a result , after finishing PCIE-PCI bridge device QEMU PCI subsystem can be moved to QOM model.
