I was just looking at using this new function to print PCIe BW for a
NIC, but I'm slightly worried that there is nothing in the message that
says PCIe... For a NIC some people may interpret the bandwidth as NIC
bandwidth:

[ 39.839989] nfp 0000:04:00.0: Netronome Flow Processor NFP4000/NFP6000 PCIe Card Probe
[ 39.848943] nfp 0000:04:00.0: 63.008 Gb/s available bandwidth (8 GT/s x8 link)
[ 39.857146] nfp 0000:04:00.0: RESERVED BARs: 0.0: General/MSI-X SRAM, 0.1: PCIe XPB/MSI-X PBA, 0.4: Explicit0, 0.5: Explicit1, fre4

It's not a 63Gbps NIC... I'm sorry if this was discussed before and I
didn't find it. Would it make sense to add the "PCIe: " prefix to the
message like bnx2x used to do? Like:

nfp 0000:04:00.0: PCIe: 63.008 Gb/s available bandwidth (8 GT/s x8 link)

Sorry for a very late comment.
