Going once...twice... ;)

Full pci.txt text is easier to review at:

Same place.


Rewrite Documentation/pci.txt:
o restructure document to match how API is used when writing init code.
o update to reflect changes in struct pci_driver function pointers.
o removed language on "new style vs old style" device discovery.
"Old style" is now deprecated. Don't use it. Left description in
to document existing driver behaviors.
o add section "Legacy I/O Port free driver" by Kenji Kaneshige
(renamed to "pci_enable_device_bars() and Legacy I/O Port space")

Thank you for updating this.
It looks much better.

Thank you again,
Kenji Kaneshige
