    That reminds me of some idea I had been thinking about for some time:

    What about adding some pci_request_irq() and pci_request_{,mem_}_region,
    which would allow for some cleanup of ever-recurring code sequences in
    drivers, and which at the same time would allow for the above?
    pci_request_mem_region() might even include the ioremap() as well ;)

    And yeah, eventually, that might be better done at 'struct device' level,
    but that doesn't make a difference to the conceptual idea.
