It may have been needed once upon a time when some PCI stuff resided inside
Xen. Now that dom0 does the whole lot, we could probably avoid
scan-all-functions, at least for domain0 (since I'm not sure about its
interaction with pcifront, but I expect devices exported via pcifront get
probed in a different way anyway and aren't scanned for at all).
