Subject[PATCH] Run PCI driver initialization on local node

Run PCI driver initialization on local node

Instead of adding messy kmalloc_node()s everywhere run the
PCI driver probe on the node local to the device.
Then the normal NUMA aware allocators do the right thing.

This would not have helped for IDE, but should for
other more clean drivers that do more initialization in probe().
It won't help for drivers that do most of the work
on first open (like many network drivers)
