True. I just realized that I call pcib_init()
from my application (GeSys) which is a work-around...

A call should probably go into


Nicely, the BSP defines an weak alias of bsp_start for an
application to redefine bsp_start(). Hence it's easy to
test a modified version (doing a pcib_init() call). Make
sure to verify it still works on a PC *without* PCI, then
submit a PR.
