Realistically the PCI code will only ever execute on Linux, since
it uses VFIO linux kernel features, so if we don't test PCI bits
on macOS that's fine.

That said though, I'd be fine if you wanted to make the virpcimock
cross-platform too.

I'd pick whichever strategy results in the nicest code to maintain
