Hmm; I must be missing something...  cuz to me it looks like pci_32.c
will allways call pcibios_init, which will will scan the bus, which will
swizzle irqs if the platform has non-null swizzle and map_irq function
pointers defined..  Perhaps a setting I've missed somewhere re.
'pci_auto', which I thought was a 'ppc' thing, not a 'powerpc' thing..??
