This is where our IBM hypervisor makes things murky. It doesn't expose
the PCIe parents (basically somewhat makes PCIe look like PCI except we
still have the PCIe caps on the child devices, just no access to the
parent device).

It's garbage but can't be fixed (would break AIX :-)

However we might be able to populate the bus->max_bus_speed from some
architecture specific quirk and have radeon use that.
