Dave - Thanks for the feedback.

1) I was kind of worried that I had messed up the bugzilla posting with the 
initially
    incorrect subsystem diagnosis (Xorg vs kernel).

2) Is this something that can just be kicked upstream?  I would (naively) 
think a
   discrepancy between /proc/bus/pci/devices and /proc/bus/pci/xx/* would be
   a clear "OOPS" for whoever maintains the pci part of procfs, which I 
wouldn't
   think would be Fedora specific.

3) Am I correct in assuming that the referral to the upstream kernel folks 
must be
    done by a distro developer?  That seems to be the gist of a message on 
their
    website.
