The board TRM:
says that "slot position" and "AD signal connected to IDSEL"
are the same thing:

"The slot positions for PCI cards are numbered from 11 to 31.
The numbering is based on the address bit that is connected
to the IDSEL line."

Slot 0xd is where the second PCI card QEMU emulates appears.
It doesn't correspond to either A or B in real hardware.
That trace output is the result of running the kernel on QEMU.

On QEMU we put the host at slot 11 (lowest possible) and
then cards at 12, 13, ... because generally people want to
be able to plug in more than two cards. It also improves our
backward-compatiliity with old kernels which assume old broken
QEMU behaviour. This is kind of like modelling a rather
extended (but admittedly fictitious) backplane.

On real hardware the physical "slot A" and "slot B" on
the backplane are 'slot' 31 and 30, and the host appears
at 29.

I don't currently have the h/w set up, but digging in my email
archives, when we were running the kernel on the real PB926
h/w and backplane it was indeed reporting the PCI core (ie
"slot C") as 29, and the other two as 30 and 31:
[ 128.920150] PCI core found (slot 29)
[ 128.920875] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 10: [io 0x0af0-0x0aff]
[ 128.920958] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 14: [io 0x0a70-0x0a7f]
[ 128.921032] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 18: [io 0x01f0-0x01ff]
[ 128.921103] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 1c: [io 0x0170-0x017f]
[ 128.921173] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 20: [io 0xcc00-0xcc1f]
[ 128.921244] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 24: [io 0x8c00-0x8cff]
[ 128.921320] pci 0000:00:1f.0: reg 30: [mem 0xffff0000-0xffffffff pref]

(that's from two years ago, a kernel with Arnd's
patchset applied, detecting a SATA card in slot 31).
