^ Unfortunately true. One thing you can do is try to pick an existing
device that's close to yours -- some donor PCI, USB etc device and start
using that as a reference.

If you can share (broad) details of what device you are trying to
implement, we might be able to point you to relevant examples to use as
a reference.
