I don't know. In the past we had OpenWRT/LEDE folks complain that
the PCI core is hogging too much memory on their space-constrained
Mips routers, so they #ifdef'ed a lot of x86-specific stuff in
quirks.c. In the same vein they could argue that they'd like to
disable unneeded PCIe services. That space argument and possibly
the reduction of attack surface on Linux firewalls is the only
justification I can come up with for a separate Kconfig option for
bandwidth notification.

Thanks,

Lukas
