This snippet of code is from test_mp_secondary.c

    /* Run a test_pci call */
    if (test_pci() != 0) {
        printf("PCI scan failed in secondary\n");
        if (getuid() == 0) /* pci scans can fail as non-root */ {
            return -1;
    } else
        printf("PCI scan succeeded in secondary\n");

Shouldn't  if (getuid() == 0) /* pci scans can fail as non-root */  be getuid()!=0 since we are checking if the pci scans fail if user is not root ?
