Ok so I guess I'll start asking questions.  "pci_domain"  this is the 
top level I guess?  Where are all the different device types listed at?

The use of "on" this is on as in on/off and not "this item is on this item"

Is the order of the config file related to the order of the init 
sequence the code generates?

So after I fix up this example to match our board where would my board 
specific code go?  Is there still a mainboard.c? I've got things that 
disable the secondary IDE controller and a few other specials.
