In my case it does because we have other devices (DSPs) that are hard  
coded to know where in PCI address space the FPGA is.

As for how does one load it.  We have GPIO pins connected to the FPGA  
and load it from a file in user space with a kernel driver  
implementing the bit "protocol" over GPIO.
