    Perhaps it makes sense to create a new lpc subsystem with an lpc bus
    type. Then the PCI driver would register a new lpc bus and LPC device
    drivers would register themselves with that. Or if the LPC is
    independent of any PCI device the LPC "bridge" driver would just be
    another driver to be loaded.

    It sounds like it might end up similar to the i2c subsystem for example.
