After some more research, I noticed that the distinction between
primary and secondary host bridges will go away _anyway_, so
I guess we shouldn't worry about it too much.

On powerpc64, we already don't care, as the arch/powerpc/kernel/isa-bridge.c
code takes care of legacy I/O areas there, instead of the PCI code.
It's only needed on machines with legacy ISA devices (PC keyboard,
floppy, ...), and those can be converted to use the isa-bridge code
at some point.
