A lot of that code has to run way before the PCI config stuff is even
useable and certainly before the PCI layer data structures have been
created.... Sucks but that's how it is for now. We might be able to
tweak and delay init of the APICs etc... but I don't think I can be
bothered for now as it's a bit of a corner case.
