I think if you read through to the latest blog entries, any updates are
available.  There's a post specifically addressing ACS in various Intel
processors which boils down to Xeon E5 or better or a "High End Desktop
Processor", which appears to be a re-branded E5.  I just posted last week
quirks for Skylake PCH root port ACS; turns out Intel did implement ACS on
those root ports, but not to the register offsets defined by the PCIe
spec.  Those quirks will hopefully be coming in the v4.7 kernel.  The
100-series chipset still has the issue that more of the integrated
components are part of multi-function devices without ACS, so some of those
onboard devices are not going to be easily assignable as they have been on
previous chipsets, I don't expect any progress there.  Thanks,
