Not all that many drivers:

pcibios_find_class is used in the following files:

The lmc driver has only had 1 janitor cleanup in all of 2.5, and the
aironet4500_card driver has had only trivial changes too. But I'll try
to fix them up, if anyone uses them, and I break them, I'm sure I'll
hear about it :)

pcibios_find_device is used in only 11 different drivers. I'll go clean
up those instances too.

And I thought I caught all of the places that pcibios_present() was used
already, but I'll go verify that again.

I'll clean them all up and resubmit these changes to you when finished.
