We really want to stop doing that crap and put a pointer to the host
bridge directly in each pci_dev (and maybe pci_bus).

We already do that on powerpc via sysdata (pointing to our private
structure but the plan is to move that toward struct pci_host_bridge

We'll need host bridge access to deal with resource "offsets" in a few
more places and having to do a lookup is just a pain.

For example, see my earlier email about the issues with the way we
calculate the minimum address to assign devices. This is currently
broken when we have an offset and to fix it we'll probably want to deal
with offsets all the way down in the resource allocation code.
