Right, and if I recall correctly when adding sparc64 support for
the sysfs slot stuff if you wanted to create the slots in a
non-hotplug situation (which all of the sparc64 cases are) you
had to defer the sysfs node creation to later in the boot than
when the PCI buses are actually probed and populated.
