Ok, so the question would be then why do you not override the value
in root->segment then (actually, is it *correct* to leave the segment
value in root-> unchanged even if it is overriden) ?

Anyway, node is just used for a printk, why do not you add segment and
node to acpi_pci_root_info ? Just cosmetic stuff, trying to help you
simplify the code, it is not easy to parse.
