Yes, there are a couple of pci_p2pdma functions that take struct devices
directly simply because it's way more convenient for the caller. That's
what find_parent_pci_dev() takes care of (it returns false if the device
is not a PCI device). Whether that's appropriate here is hard to say
seeing we haven't seen any caller code.
