RE: [PATCH 2.6.13-rc4 1/1] pci_ids: patch for Intel ICH7R

This define is not actually used anywhere that I know of. I just wanted
to be consistent and correct, following what was previously done. I
have been wondering if I should be adding devices to the pci_ids.h file
that are not being currently used. It seems like most drivers are not
using these defines and are just using the DID's directly. In the
future, should I only be add devices that are actually using the defines
