Maybe in retrospect the syntax is legible, reading:
  pcictl pcibus command [arg [...]]

  the following commands are available:

  list [-Nn] [-b bus] [-d device] [-f function]

  any-other-command [-b bus] -d device ...

does not make me try "pcictl pci0 list" as the first try (or first 10 tries, my attempts were all "pcictl list -d pci0" and variants)

an example or two will be nice.
writing then man page as pcibus list ... is also nice.

nicer still, make pcictl list work without any argument, listing for all pci buses.
