Good idea. I always wondered why we read the invariants so often
in the code.

probe.c:pci_setup_device() is also reading this byte but discards it:
	pci_read_config_dword(dev, PCI_CLASS_REVISION, &class);
	class >>= 8;                                /* upper 3 bytes */
	dev->class = class;

Can you use "class & 0xff"? Or is pci_setup_device() too late?
Or can you read the whole 32-bits in pci_scan_device() and remove
the pci_read_config() in pci_setup_device()?

If anyone doesn't want to add this, "class" really only uses 24 bits.
ie could be packed together with revision field like they are in
PCI configuration header.
