SubjectRecent x86-64 patch causes many devices to disappear

The following patch made A TON of devices disappear on my HP XW9300
system. I complained the day it was committed, but alas...

> This is needed to see all devices.

Finally, I was able to get to testing it, and provide proof that a
shitload of devices do indeed disappear:

*.rc4 - rc4, plus some libata changes, PCI domains disabled
*.rc5 - rc5-git1, PCI domains disabled
*.rc5-pcidom - rc5-git1, PCI domains enabled

As the patch doesn't work, and the description is proven patently false,
maybe we can now consider reverting it and making a better patch? My
Marvell SATA and MPT Fusion devices are no longer available, as a diff
between lspci.rc5 and lspci.rc5-pcidom demonstrates.
