On the other hand...

One thing that annoys the sh*it out of me is that I cannot use
pcibios_set_master() to establish the DMA/iommu resources for a device,
because set_dma_mask() will be called -after- set_master(), thus I need
to provision every device with 32-bit DMA resources (which can be quite
scarse) just in case the driver doesn't later call set_dma_mask(64-bit).

If only we could reverse the call order... lots of drivers to fix
unfortunately.

In which case I -would- hook into pcibios_set_master()...

Cheers,
Ben.
