[OpenBIOS] PIC Passthough( VGA )

I'm a little lost.
I don't have an old G5 with a PCI-E slot to dump the propreties of the card.
I'm not sure if the PCI Header is not being loaded that the FCode can match to the device(pci10de,0141).
I don't know if that's related to this issue or not.

 When I do:
0 > 0 0 " 4,0" " /pci at f2000000" begin-package  ok
0 > dev /pci ls 
fff8042c mac-io at c
fff83008 usb at d
fff83374 QEMU,VGA at e
fff87994 NE2000 at f
fff87d44 pci10de,141 at 10
fffad3dc <noname>
0 > 

It creates a <noname> device, but it has no address, so I can't get the .properties or words from it. I'm sure I'm not getting this command right, I don't think OpenBios has a "Slot" property for PCI Cards?
That maybe an issue?

That's right.  It's a token created with new-token instead of named-token
or external-token (b5, b6, ca respectively).  It has no name, so you cannot
call it by name, but it is perfectly valid FCode, you can access the created
word by token number like everything else.
