I understand DEC Alpha has PCI, and we continue to support several
RDMA devices that used the PCI bus.

However, the hif1, rdma vt and qib drivers modified in this patch are
PCI-Express ONLY. So I think this idea is fine, but would revise the
commit message to focus on PCI-E not Infiniband.

Did you mean to have ioat/dma.c in this patch?
