There's a patch queued to fix this.

EDAC drivers get information to translate system physical addresses
to DIMM addresses from a whole bundle of different PCIe devices config
space.  Connections between different parts of the translation algorithm
depend on finding the devices that belong to the same memory controller
by matching up bus numbers (actually <segment,busnumber> tuples as
we are now finding).

Can pci_register_driver() cope with this odd usage?
