Re: [PATCH] pcictl: simplify its usage

I didn't follow all the thread, just want to make sure that
everyone is aware of the fact that the N and the M in
pcictl /dev/pciN <command> -b M
are not the same: N is a logical index chosen by autoconf
and M is the physical bus number.
This might be not a big issue with a simple PC, but on
a big box with multiple PCI hierarchies the same physical bus
number can occur multiple times.
