    Arg how did I miss that? Maybe the last build I did was missing
    hotplug support or something... Anyway looking now (at first glance I
    think pci_rescan_bus needs to drop __devinit).

    Yeah, this tree generally sees a good amount of testing, especially
    from the hotplug folks. And yeah, I'd never rebase and then do a pull
    request; I like to let things sit in linux-next for at least a day to
    flush out any build errors and give a chance for people to test any
    merge conflicts I resolved.
