I think we've all got that "unknown" bit, and it's annoying to some of us.
Like me. (So I'm anal about stuff like that. Who cares?;)

Was on LISC the other night, and off the top of my head, I came up with the
craziest idea I've had to date. I was in the middle of working with
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/pci.h when it hit me.

Let's use the #define PCI_CLASS_PROCESSOR functions for something! I'm
pretty sure that with a little work, it could be setup so that the
PCI_CLASS_PROCESSOR results replace the "unknown." Anybody up for it? :)
