lib/ is certainly better than drivers/pci ... so unless anyone has a better
location, we'll go with that.

My patch only removed the include for linux/pci.h and asm/pci.h
(as per Mathhew Wilcox's suggestion) and then cleaned  up the
resulting compilation fluff.  There are a few more PCI references in
comments and printk messages that should be cleaned up too.
Oh, I only compile tested for ia64 ... so it needs compile-testing
for x86-64, and boot testing for both archs.

I have one other change to swiotlb.c (from Alex Williamson) sitting
in my "test" tree, which needs to not get lost.  I'm happy to drive
this (target 2.6.15 ... this isn't 2.6.14 bug fix material). So long as
I don't get burned to a crisp for offloading this Intel specific[1] stuff
into the generic part of the tree.
