    SubjectPCI probing in slot order?
    It would be nice to have devices compiled into the kernel probe in slot
    order, ie.

    slot 1 - video card - fbdev/nothing
    slot 2 - ethernet card - tulip
    slot 3 - 2nd ethernet card - eepro100

    However this makes initialization hairy, because you cannot init the
    hardware at init_module time. For new PCI drivers I think this is an
    easy problem -- just delay when probe() is called -- but it seems like
    the new PCI API will need a bit of reworking before slot order probing
    is possible.
