Without really thinking, is this a problem?  Consider that:

        pcictl pci0 list -b 2
        pcictl pci2 list

given the same output and the first opens /dev/pci0 and the second opens
/dev/pci2.  I don't know how these are routed in the kernel, so don't
know if any arbitary "pciN" is the equivalent to "pci0 -b N"...
