Pay no attention to the man behind the dts!

Seriously, though, it's quite fragile right now.  We probably need to  
change u-boot to correctly number those things.  And we should  
probably change the dts files for each board to have any soldered-on  
pci devices.

Right now, though, we'd settle for being able to *use* those devices  
under a default setting.
