    PCI: pci-stub module to reserve pci device · c70e0d9d
    Chris Wright authored
    When doing device assignment with KVM there's currently nothing to
    protect the device from having a driver in the host as well as the guest.
    This trivial module just binds the pci device on the host to a stub
    driver so that a real host driver can't bind to the device.  It has no
    pci id table, it supports only dynamic ids.
