OK, someone can roll it back. Actually the E7501 support in v2 is side
product when I tried to add support for E7520...

This is not something I think it is worth much of an argument about.
I think doing this with the E7501 makes is less good as an example,
for other boards.
Except for chipsets with multiple northbridges I don't intend to
use the root_complex structure.
When you have multiple northbridges it nicely makes the information
we specify per northbridge symmetric. Which helps in a lot
of little ways. But for a single chipset it really is unnecessary.
It is the device's that really cary structure information and we have
all of those, one way or another.
