    Hi Kenji

    I think instead of modifying all the arch specific code, you could use the __attribute__(weak)
    and define a default dummy funcion in drivers/pci/pci.c

    void __attribute__((weak)) pcibios_disable_device(struct pci_dev *dev) { }

    each arch that really needs this can define the override function. That way you dont need to
    put the dummy function in several places, containing your changes to a very few set of files.
