Ah! Of course.

Hm. Would the coreboot source tree path work?


Too complicated to deal with in code maybe?

The compile time name and the PCI device ID are the only two things
uniquely identifying a component right now.

Should we add a name to struct constructor for this purpose?
Maybe it can be automatically defined by the build system using the
directory name. Does that still work with the LX since we consider
it a multifunction device?
