if all you need is sysfs then pcibios_bus_add_device() or a bus
notifier should work

Hmm, is that an s390 thing? I was under the impression that drivers
handled enabling the device rather than assuming the platform did it
for them. Granted it's usually one of the first things a driver does,
but there's still scope for surprising behaviour.

I'm sure it works fine in your particular case. My main gripe is that
you're adding a flag in a generic structure so people reading the code
without that context may make assumptions about when it's valid to
use. The number of pcibios_* hooks we have means that working out when
and where something happens in the pci setup path usually involves
going on a ~magical journey~ through generic and arch specific code.
It's not *that* bad once you've worked out how it all fits together,
but it's still a pain. If we can initialise stuff before the pci_dev
is added to the bus it's usually for the better.
