The real bug may be a rusult of improper setup and since there is no cable
detection bit in the XMETA Lifebook, but it needs the southbridge setup
calls, that snippet of code must be move to above function.

lines 570-590 and 611-620 or there abouts, with their if(version) test.
Rereading the code, docs, comments -- it is clear pci_init code for the
host.
