There is no defintion of "peer to peer" in the driver/device model, so
why should this be in the driver core at all?

Especially as you only do this for PCI, why not just keep it in the PCI
layer, that way you _know_ you are dealing with the right pointer types
and there is no need to mess around with the driver core at all.
