My understanding is that the "foohb_setup" above is supposed to be equivalent
to the "int (*setup)(struct pci_host_bridge *, resource_size_t)" in V9 that was
passed in as an argument of "of_create_pci_hot_bridge()".

The problem I have is I need an intermediate step between "pci_create_root_bus()"
and "pci_scan_child_bus()" in order to update the information such as the "pci_bus->msi"
before this is propagate down to the child bus during the "pci_scan_child_bus"
which is also called in the pci_scan_root_bus() function.

Does this mean that I should not be calling the pci_scan_root_bus(), and tries to
re-implement the same logic in my driver?
