    I've managed to track some down.

    Converting cpqphp to use the modern pci_get_slot() API has been
    on my TODO list for a while. It was languishing because I
    couldn't find hardware nor time.

    I've got hardware now. Just need to free up a few cycles. :-/

    But if it's not worth it, I'm fine with marking as CONFIG_BROKEN
    and scheduling for eventual deletion.
