If the PCIe bridge is a PCI device itself, it should be sufficient to
mention the PCIe "driver" using the "driver" keyword in Config.lb to get
the device specific code executed for each device found in the system.

You _might_ have to mention the bridge in some cases, like when there
are undetectable devices behind the bridge. 
Most Config.lb files in LinuxBIOSv2 are quite over specified in this
