According to the document Randy referenced, the preferred place for
*new* defines is to stick them in the local files where they are used.
I don't think there is any preference for moving the out of pci_ids.h
as it would just cause patch noise for the sake of making noise.

So much for being able to go through the pci_ids.h file to get an idea
about whether or not a device may have a chance of being supported :(
