    SubjectRe: PCI device problems
    Dave et al,

    The 'unknown pci' stuff comes from /drivers/pci/pci.c
    based on pci_lookup_dev() failing - it gets its information from
    /include/linux/pci.h. If you do not want to upgrade from 1.3 to 2.*.*,
    then you could *carefully* take the PCI card details from a 2.*.* kernel
    and update pci.h; it's all table based stuff. It shouldn't be harmful,
    a lot of PCI setup is generic and based on the PCI class of the device
    and not on the {device id, vendor id} pair (from the PCI configuration
    header). It just makes /proc/pci neater and more understandable. I
    cannot remember 1.3 anymore and so I cannot remember when the 'unknown'
    warning message was added/deleted/changed...
