Subject: [PATCH v2] PCI/LINK: bw_notification: Do not leave interrupt handler NULL

A threaded IRQ with a NULL handler does not work with level-triggered
interrupts. request_threaded_irq() will return an error:

  genirq: Threaded irq requested with handler=NULL and !ONESHOT for irq 16
  pcie_bw_notification: probe of 0000:00:1b.0:pcie010 failed with error -22

For level interrupts we need to silence the interrupt before exiting
the IRQ handler, so just clear the PCI_EXP_LNKSTA_LBMS bit there.

Fixes: e8303bb7a75c ("PCI/LINK: Report degraded links via link bandwidth notification")
Reported-by: Linus Torvalds <>
Signed-off-by: Alexandru Gagniuc <>
Changes since v1:
 - move pcie_update_link_speed() to irq to prevent duplicate read of link_status
 - Add Fixes: to commit message
