This new id is to be used in the newly added edac driver amd8111_edac.c
that I have posted to the mailing list on March 9th, it is used to probe
the PCI Bridge Controller on AMD8111 chip.

Ok, I see for the time being I had better define this new id as a macro
in amd8111_edac.c.

And I am a little curious that do you mean that pci_ids.h maintainer
would have to track how many times a new id have been requested to
decide if to merge it into the file or not?

Thank you very much for your comments!

Best regards,

Harry
