ACPI requires to run acpi_pci_{add|remove}_bus while new PCI bus is created.
This allows to do some ACPI-specific additional configuration, like
PCI hotplug slot enumeration. In order to fulfill these requirements,
we implement arch-specific pcibios_{add|remove}_bus calls
and call acpi_pci_{add|remove}_bus from there.

Is there a reason why this has to be a standalone patch ?

No there is no good reason behind this I will squash it with 9.

It is pretty much useless without patch 9 or I have stared at
this series for too long.

Yes, it is useless w/o patch 9.
