The big switch down there lists the architectures/machines that do have
a PCI bus and we disallow adding PCI devices if they don't.

I thought that any device that qemuAssignDevicePCISlots assigns a PCI
address to would fail at QEMU level with a message about the PCI bus not
found, but it seems this is not the case for the implicit USB controller
-- we assign the address 0:0:1.2 to it, but it shows up
just as '-usb' at the qemu commmand line.

Are you able to start it after you delete the PCI address from the USB
controller in the XML? (in this case, qemuAssignDevicePCISlots will just
assign it without checking if there's a PCI bus available)

Not here, it would result in it getting an implicit PCI controller in
the XML, even though it doesn't have a PCI bus.

The right thing would be to catch all the non-PCI devices we assign an
adddress to. Or we could just assume 1 PCI bus is always available as a
desperate measure not to break anything.
