We need to be very careful here.

So, since ACPI is also used for bus enumeration these days, am I
contaminated after running lspci on such a system? I can draw
conclusions on their bus mapping from that.

If I look at their interrupt mapping because my linux kernel prints it
out with a debug option, am I contaminated then?

How can we _reliably_ find out where the border is here?
