We may not be using after_init() anymore in which case you are welcome
to send a patch to remove it :-)

As for the others, well ... maybe you can do wrappers for these that
call into ppc_md. on powerpc and into some kind of arch_pci_ops. that
the platform provides on microblaze ?

I'm not sure moving them into the pci_controller is the best way to go
there.

Yeah, moving includes like that is ok.

I think that should be allright, Grant, any objection there ?

If you can convince other archs that it makes sense to do so ? :-)

Not just quite yet, there's still some stuff we need to cleanup with
the !coherent cases.

Well, first of all, those aren't ppc32 only anymore, they are in
pci-common.c now. Then, if you look at them you'll notice that
they are just a wrapper on top of pci_bus_* which uses a fake
pci_bus structure. IE. They are meant to be used in very early
arch fixup code at a time when we may not even have the struct
pci_bus at hand. Their use is pretty rare though, maybe we -could-
get rid of them at some stage by moving some of that fixup code.

Cheers,
