Regardless of who it is, people have to stop fighting over ->sysdata.
It's unscalable, regardless of who it is.

Whoever wants to be upstream first should take the basic "x86 sysdata"
bits from jgarzik/misc-2.6.git#pciseg and push those upstream... which
I note includes Calgary work.

Then NUMA, Calgary and PCI domain stuff merely involve modifying the x86
version of struct pci_sysdata.

I would NAK any [PCI domain | NUMA | Calgary]-only approach to using
->sysdata. It clearly does NOT belong to any one subsystem, regardless
of who gets upstream first.
Drop git-pciseg? sure. Make sysdata Calgary-specific? NAK.
