Yes, due to the traditional inability of userspace to deal with PCI
domains != 0, the kernel DRM macro drm_get_pci_domain() in drmP.h is
still hardcoded to 0. This needs to be fixed now; the problem is that
just fixing the macro would break old userspace, a proper fix will need
to involve DRM userspace interface versioning.
