Please take a look at:
driver->probe = axi_host_pci_probe;
driver->remove = axi_host_pci_remove;
return pci_register_driver(driver);

Hm, I'm not sure. Using EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL will forbid closed source
drivers from using our bus driver, right? I'm don't have preferences
on this, if you prefer us to force GPL, I can.

Left from old tests/rewrites/splitting. Thanks.

Hm, my logic suggests it is alright, but please consider this once
more with me ;)

For the most of the time mapped_core (active core) do not change. We
perform few hundreds of operations on one core in a row. This way
mapped_core points to passed core for most of the time. Condition
(mapped_core != core) is unlikely to happen.

Is there anything wrong in my logic?
