Interesting, I wasn't aware that hotplugged devices are configured
by the hypervisor on PowerVM. That at least means that this patch is
wrong as-is since it won't handle that properly. Definitely seems like
there will need to be different behavior here depending on the hypervisor.

That being said, wouldn't PCI_PROBE_ONLY still be set on pseries/kvm
(at least for initial boot) to observe SLOF's original BAR assignments?
Perhaps it should be un-set after initial PCI init?

Good to know. I'll await his comments before continuing here.
