ia64 and x86 doesn't pass that.

arch/ia64/pci/pci.c: pbus = pci_create_root_bus(NULL, bus,
&pci_root_ops, controller,
arch/powerpc/kernel/pci-common.c: bus =
pci_create_root_bus(hose->parent, hose->first_busno,
arch/sparc/kernel/pci.c: bus = pci_create_root_bus(parent,
pbm->pci_first_busno, pbm->pci_ops,
arch/x86/pci/acpi.c: bus = pci_create_root_bus(NULL,
busnum, &pci_root_ops, sd,
drivers/parisc/dino.c: dino_dev->hba.hba_bus = bus =
drivers/parisc/lba_pci.c: pci_create_root_bus(&dev->dev,

sparc, powerpc, parisc have their local ...

so local hose etc's dev ---> allocated dev ---> root bus's dev

this patch change to

local hose etc's dev ---> allocated host bridge's dev ---> root bus's dev
