The affected hardware here might be x86-only, but ATS is not. If a
broken ATS-capable plug-in card appears, we need this in generic code
anyway.

Also has anyone profiled why the fixups take so long (and on what
hardware)? Maybe the fixup-device matching can be improved instead of
cluttering arch-code with pci-fixups.
