    Not quite yet. I considered moving the functionality of /proc/bus/pci
    into driverfs, but couldn't find a good solid reason to do it (and it
    would involve changing lspci and any other userspace programs that use
    it today.)

    Now reimplementing /proc/bus/pci as a stand alone filesystem mounted in
    that position (like usbfs is) is another story. pcifs anyone? :)

    thanks,
