You do it in the device creation for the device you add below the PCI
device in sysfs, by setting the groups field in the device.

You don't create files in the sysfs directory for the PCI device itself,
those are owned by the PCI bus core.

This is why you are your own "bus" here, use it :)

If you still have questions, how about we take it to code, post what you
have, and I'll see what needs to be changed.

hope this helps,
