who will call the probe function of the pci driver in x86 processor

Hi all,

For the pci driver, we are registering the pci driver with pci_register_driver api which contains the pci_device_id structure.
I am clear that the probe function of the pci driver will be invoked when a pci device with proper pci device id and vendor id is found on the pci bus.
Please let me know who will invoke probe function of the pci driver?



pci, probe
