If you check for example drivers/ata/ata_generic.c it has this:

        { PCI_DEVICE_CLASS(PCI_CLASS_STORAGE_IDE << 8, 0xFFFFFF00UL),
	          .driver_data = ATA_GEN_CLASS_MATCH },

That seems to ignore programming interface.

In the above it seems that 0 is the don't care.

I think having ACPI_DEVICE() macro would be pretty useful and it avoids
things like this if we need to add new fields in the future. Rafael has
the last word, though :-)
