Blame dutifully assigned.

The next question is how to proceed. I've not gotten to PCI code in
my rework yet, but I probably will in the next month or so. If you or
Michal doesn't get to it first, then I'll probably move the OF
portions of the powerpc version into drivers/of and make them
conditional on !CONFIG_MICROBLAZE. Microblaze adaptations can be
merged in at a later date and the !CONFIG_MICROBLAZE conditional
eventually dropped.
