SubjectRe: [PATCH] PCI: create device, function symlinks in /sys/bus/pci/slots/N/

This looks it would be quite useful but the symlinks are not adjusted
during hot-add and hot-remove operations (e.g. stale symlinks persist
after hot-remove and new symlinks are not created in response to hot-add)
so it could confuse more than help on systems with PCI hotplug support.
