Oh, that's a good idea! I'm interested.
It will be great to make some order in my head redrawing that PCI
thing. I'll be glad to hear about both PCI and PCIe. And your lecture
agenda sounds just right.

I'm talking about the hardware (and protocol) principles of a PCI vs PCIe buses (which are completely different), a bird's view on the configuration of a PCI device ("plug and play", done by BIOS for most of us), then a bit about bus mastering and DMA, and wrap it all up with describing the anatomy of a Linux PCI driver. Just so one knows what it's trying to accomplish when reading the source. Ah, and we also have IRQ's and MSI's. A lot of fun, in short.
