No, if the machine has no buses, we would have no place to put the
bridge in. (Unless it's a PCI express machine, but libvirt doesn't know
how to use those yet)

And we'll error out anyway with:
error: XML error: No PCI buses available
either in GetNextSlot called by AssignPCISlots for devices without an
address, or in PCIAddressValidate called by CollectPCIAddress for
explicitly specified PCI addresses.
