I wonder if there ought to be a away of getting these PCI device
ids into filestore - so that you don't have to rebuild a kernel
to add an equivalent device?
Some method of deferring devive configuration until later would do.
Any mechanism would probably help loadable derivers pick up hardware.
Also things like deferring the allocation of io resource to (eg)
pcmcia slots until all the devices with fixed addresses would help.
