Naming is always more complicated than it seems.  For anything other
than a root bus devices, the PCI address doesn't exist until SeaBIOS
enumerates devices and assigns bus numbers for bridges.  So unless we
want to provide a path to the device like ACPI defines, maybe we should
just stick with "etc/igd-opregion".  It seems easily extensible to add
more specific files later and default to this one if those aren't found.
