strangeness on geode/alix board (www.pcengines.ch , alix.1b)
The little board boots, but no pci bus/devices ..
indeed pciconf can't open /dev/pci 'device not configured' .. and
acpi code panics the kernel for the same reason - no pci bus/devices .. :(
scratching my head on this one ... it's a little odd!! :)

boot -v so we can see what it tries to probe.
I think the PCI bus probing starts in kern/bus/pci/i386/pcibus.c but I
am not sure. Check out nexus_legacypci_probe() in that file. I believe
this probe is overridden by ACPI or the PCI BIOS but I'm not sure.
