Mmm, if you need to do something for every device on the
path then that's more awkward with MRs.

Yes. I was just suggesting it was worth considering at least to
the point of being able to make a decision about which design
is likely to be cleaner. If PCI express needs the dynamic walk
of the path then it's probably better to handle plain PCI that
way too for consistency.
