Oh true, we'll need to allocate any extra bus number space somehow so
that hot plug of bridges is possible in the future w/o renumbering
(until our glorious future when we can move resources on the fly by
stopping drivers).

Yeah that would be nice, the call would certainly make more sense that
way.
