now that I understand what's going on, I think it's better to make
pci_root_ops non-static.  Of course, it'd be better if SN2 used acpi to
discover its root busses, but I guess that'll take longer to implement.

himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
