There's a bit of overlap in these patches with the code in the PCI
backend, frontend, and the PCI tools and I'm considering some
possibilities to reduce this duplication (i.e. adding some kind of base
physical device code). If time permits, I hope to design, implement, and submit a solution. But for now, I thought I'd put these out for comment.

Looks okay to me, but I'd be interested in hearing if anyone has a burning need for this driver before thinking about applying it. It would obviously be more attractive if it shared more code with the PCI codebase. Maybe the drivers could even be merged?
