I think we should just remove it.

It's broken.

Nobody cares.

If people want to do concurrent stuff at bootup, it should be the _other_
buses (like USB, IDE or SCSI or anything like that, that actually has
operations that can delay) that end up asynchronous. And I think we could
have some generic functionality for the drivers themselves to do their
probing in parallel. But I think the PCI one was just a mistake.
