I'll remove the bus number mangling from it so it uses ->sysdata
instead, make it an additional stage of the patch series and convert
arch/i386/pci/numa.c to use it instead.

Bus number mangling has been vetoed numerous times; the agreed-upon
method of dealing with this is stuffing arch-private information in
->sysdata and dispatching on that within PCI config access routines.
