Yes, you end up with exactly names like "qumranet::veth" and "ibm-pvirt-clock". I would recommend looking very hard at /proc, Open Firmware on a modern system, or the Xen store, to see what a lack of limitation can do to you :)
We will support non-pci for s390, but in order to support Windows and
older Linux PCI is necessary.
The aim is that PCI support is clean, but that we're not really tied to PCI. I think we're getting closer with the recent config changes.
