in V1 I used to call the pci ops directly, e.g.
extern pci_ops pci_direct;
Presumably this will work in V2 as well.

I think my fix is to make a copy of romcc_io.h, with different names and
type signatures, for use by functions that need to work with PCI before
the PCI scan has been done.
comments welcome. I'll do this after lunch unless I hear strong
counterarguments that will get me what I need.
