NAME

pci_enable_device - Initialize device before it's used by a driver.

SYNOPSIS

int pci_enable_device(struct pci_dev dev);

ARGUMENTS

dev

PCI device to be initialized

DESCRIPTION

Initialize device before it's used by a driver. Ask low-level code to enable I/O and memory. Wake up the device if it was suspended. Beware, this function can fail.

Note we don't actually enable the device many times if we call this function repeatedly (we just increment the count).
