That actually sounds reasonable, though it might be more efficient
to have something like pci_parse_config() or similar called once
with a pre-cooked config space.

Internally inside pci.c it can do that same loop you mention. The
advantage is that it can also do whatever else we might need in the
future. If for some reason, something wants to cache a cap pointer
it can be done there, whatever else that is normally initialized as
fields to generate the config space can be initialized by reading the
config space and then initializing the fields etc... from that one
