Thanks for submitting.
It's possible to blacklist the execution of an option rom on a
particular device today by creating a dummy option rom for that device
in CBFS. Given this, is this patch still needed?
Putting PCI bus/dev/fn ids in CBFS isn't a great solution because (I'm
told) some boards can change BDFs from one boot to another. (In
general, BDFs are not stable.) That's why the existing option rom
mechanism uses vendor/device ids.
BTW, the white space in your patch got corrupted during delivery.
