Subjectignore pci devices?

I have a small problem: Some vendor has built a PCI board which
(ab-)uses the bt848/878 chip in creative ways to do some DMA. It is
*not* a video card, thus letting the bttv driver control the card isn't
very useful and causes trouble. The card has no PCI Subsystem ID, so I
can't identify and blacklist it easily. Thus I need some way to allow
the users to tell bttv (or the kernel) to ignore that particular PCI

Is there already something generic for this? Some kernel parameter
which makes pci_module_init() skip a given PCI device for example?

Another way to fix this I'm thinking about is to add a insmod option
along the lines "ignore=<bus>,<slot>" to bttv. Comments? Better idea?


You can't please everybody. And usually if you _try_ to please
everybody, the end result is one big mess.
