On reflection, I think this will work. We have a Xen pci passthrough
driver which gets told about the passed-through devices via xenbus, and
does the appropriate setup. At first glance, there doesn't seem to be
any problem with that code just explicitly instantiate the devices at
the PCI level in the same way pci_scan_device does (ie,
alloc_pci_device, initalize the dev struct, pci_setup_device).

Is that what you mean?

IanC has looked at that code more closely, so perhaps he can confirm
that this will work on our side.
