So If I get this right then the call to pci_locate_device() was
causing the delay?
I guess looping through every bus, dev, function searching for a
device could take a while.

Probally the best thing to do is to create a mainboard/via/epia-ml
directory.  I bet that won't be the only thing thats different.
