/proc/pci deprecation?

ISTR /proc/pci being deprecated at one point in the past. It may have only
been discussed, though. In which case, is it possible to deprecate it?
lscpi(8) is considered a superior means to derive the same information.

Elimination of it would eliminate a chunk of code in drivers/pci/proc.c,
and obviate the use of struct device::name by the PCI layer. This change
would probably allow us to remove the name field altogether, since PCI is
the only code that really relies on it (and only for /proc/pci AFAICT).

Is anything in userspace still relying on /proc/pci?
