It actually completely broke the SPARC Solaris build until I stole the
bsd_pci stubs so that it relied only on libpciaccess.   (commit
570835b9a89187a36e08defbccc56051bb349b52 ).

Now it builds, but I still need to get updated SPARC drivers to test
how well it works.   (Though Sun's driver team would rather we just
disable PCI probing altogether on SPARC, since they just require a
kernel device driver for all cards anyway, I know some community
members would like to be able to use non-Sun cards without existing
kernel drivers.)
