I would vote for pcim_*() variant.

Oh, sorry, there are two examples currently, i.e.
pci_enable_msi()/pci_enable_msix() and pci_request_region*() which has
no "m" in the name, but are managed on release by pcim_release().
Some developers consider this as a bad idea, but so far no patch has
been sent to introduce pcim_*() variants of those.

So, regarding to your stuff, I would stick with "pcim" prefix.
