Adding a PCI device that doesn't exist (yet)

Thanks for your help.  Certainly that's not ideal, but it may turn out
to be our only option.

Currently I'm investigating using proc_pci_attach_device() at the kernel
level to add the device from the driver module init(post-program), but
it's not looking promising.

I think this can work with the current mechanisms. You need to have your

chip programmed pre-pci-scan, and the current config mechanism supports 
that fine. 

Is this V1 or V2, I forget.
