I doubt if we can make sysdata itself generic because I suspect we
need a way to have *some* arch-specific data. But maybe the arch
could supply a structure containing a struct device *, domain, struct
pci_ops *, list of resources, aperture info, etc. I wonder if struct
pci_host_bridge would be a reasonable place to put this stuff, e.g.,
something like this:

struct pci_host_bridge {
int domain;
int node;
struct device *dev;
struct pci_ops *ops;
struct list_head resources;
void *sysdata;
struct pci_bus *bus; /* filled in by core, not by arch */
... /* other existing contents managed by core */

struct pci_bus *pci_scan_host_bridge(struct pci_host_bridge *bridge);
