It gets dangerous since platforms are in control of some pci_dev and dev
fields, and if they don't get initialized you can get into trouble.

Would be good to find someone to do some testing on one of those platforms...

Feel like respinning with a full changelog against my for-linus branch? Maybe
you can convince Tomonori-san this time. :)
