to attach acpi device_t's to any nodes under PCI busses?
This is harder to arrange. Note that the proposed patch only applies to a
Device(), not to Processor() or ThermalZone(), etc. objects. I believe
though that all such things that you mentioned use either an object type other
than ACPI_TYPE_DEVICE, an entirely different table (MADT, SRAT, etc.), or a
Device() with a HID or CID.

Yes, and we already handle that case (there's an older tablet that hung a
system resource device off its PCI-ISA bridge). In that case you still (as
now) end up with two device_t's, one attached to acpi0, the other attached
to the relevant PCI bus.
