our adapter supports the "New Capabilities" VPD and Power Management.
The PCI VPD ECR (from October 16, 1997) defines a new VPD keyword
"Extended Capability" (CP) which identifies the capabilities Control/Status
register in the device's address space.
The Power Management Control/Status register of our adapter can be read
(but not be written) in the device's address space.
Q: It is mandatory to define the CP keyword if any "New Capabilities"
Q: Why should 'someone' access the capabilities control/status register
in the device address space although it can be read/written in config space?
Q: Are there any new VPD keywords defined until today?
