Neat. How well does it work?

Ahem.

/* Do NOT directly access these two variables, unless you are arch specific pci
* code, or pci core code. */
extern struct list_head pci_root_buses; /* list of all known PCI buses */
extern struct list_head pci_devices; /* list of all devices */

I think it would be kinder to the API to use pci_find_device(PCI_ANY_ID,
PCI_ANY_ID, ...) here.

This will generate a CPP warning if CONFIG_SMP is not defined.

#elif defined(CONFIG_SMP)

would be preferred.

Could we have a bit more description of what this function does, and why we
need it?
Should other kexec-using architectures be using this? If not, why does
ia64 need it?

Thanks.
