On the other hand, our firmwares tend not to be and the vast majority of
our platforms have separate bus number domains (In fact I'm not sure
whether we have one that actually splits bus numbers or not, maybe some
ancient Apple gear, I need to double check).

We did use to force renumbering on macs to avoid bus number collisions
between domains because of ancient X servers that didn't do domains
properly but I think we dropped that.

Cheers,
Ben.
