Adding this functionality to libpciaccess is the right thing to do.
When enabling a device, to the buses leading to the device also have to
be enabled?  I was thinking about adding some functionality to iterate
from the root to a particular device.  This would facilitate enabling
the buses leading to the device and enabling VGA to a device.
