I saw this link and felt that the code was doing alot of work that  
was already handled by the PCI subsystem for you.  For example, there  
isn't a need for you to kmalloc your own dev and go through all the  

For your case it should be as simple as the following:

bus = pci_find_bus(0, bus_of_dev);
dev = pci_scan_single_device(bus, devfn);

You could also look at using the pci_scan_slot() / pci_find_slot()  
instead of pci_scan_single_device().
