While playing with the pc386 BSP (normally, I am a PPC person)
I came across yet another unpleasant fact. It seems that there
exist two flavors of accessing PCI config space with different
APIs :-(. Hence the PCI device drivers in libchip are not
portable across x86/ppc.
It would certainly be nice to have a common API for PCI access.
