Wait, I'm not convinced yet.  I know that if a PCI read fails, you
normally get ~0 data because the host bridge fabricates it to complete
the CPU load.

But what guarantees that a PCI config register cannot contain ~0?
If there's something about that in the spec I'd love to know where it
is because it would simplify a lot of things.

I don't think we should merge any of these patches as-is.  If we *do*
want to go this direction, we at least need some kind of macro or
function that tests for ~0 so we have a clue about what's happening
and can grep for it.
