As far as I can see, pcibios_enable_device and register_pci_controller
have never being exported symbols from vmlinux, and an allmodconfig
build with CONFIG_MIPS_COBALT=y (MIPS cobalt platform) which attempts to
put this this functionality into a module would never have linked
successfully. As such it can be traced back to when this functionality
was added, 49dc9577155576b10ff79f0c1486c816b01f58bf ("bcma: add PCIe
host controller").

Separate issues - that one fixes allmodconfig when CONFIG_MIPS_GENERIC=y
(MIPS generic platform) which does not define the struct pci_controller
- that error was really introduced when that struct definition was
removed for the generic platform by
c5611df968047fb0b38156497b4242730ef66108 ("MIPS: PCI: Introduce
CONFIG_PCI_DRIVERS_LEGACY").

I think both patches are valid since they fix errors building
allmodconfig on 2 separate MIPS platforms.

Thanks,
Matt
