Re: [Xen-devel] pcifront for ia64

this patch ports pcifont to ia64.  pciback compiles without any change.

I had to make a few change because pcifront use its own structure
(struct pcifront_sd) for sysdata while ia64 wants it own (at least for
pcibios_fixup_bus).  My solution is to reuse the ia64 sysdata structure
for pcifront, at the cost of a few ugly #ifdef.

Comments and ideas are welcome to improve this.

Also the patch fix a compile-time warning for xenbus.c.

Using this patch I was able to use an ethernet card in domU.  This is
the good news.

Move the sysdata initialisation to static inline functions in pcifront.h. That means you only have a single big ifdef in the header, and none in the main C files. With that change this will be fine to check in.
