Sure:

When the original patch moves pci_bus_add_devices() to after
pcibios_resource_survey(), this also causes the pcibios_fixup hook
to move, because it's called at the end of pcibios_resource_survey().

So pcibios_fixup would run before pcibios_bus_add_device and while I
don't think that will actually cause problems, there doesn't seem to be
any reason to change the order either. So, I think it would be better
to extract the pcibios_fixup hook out of pcibios_resource_survey() and
call it from pcibios_init after the devices are added, preserving that
ordering.

That's the general reasoning but more specifically, I want to refactor
the EEH code around adding devices, and it seems like I'm going to
need the handlers in that order so that pcibios_bus_add_device() can
probe for EEH support in devices before the EEH post init code needs to
know if any were found.
