There's a problem in xf86scanpci that causes a seg fault on large
systems. The pci_devp array is defined at compile time to have
MAX_PCI_DEVICES + 1 elements. The loop counter variable xf86MaxPciDevs
is initialized to be MAX_PCI_DEVICES, but at run time is set to the
actual number of buses in the system (in linuxPci.c). On large systems,
it is easy for that number to exceed the number of array elements (which
causes a seg fault when scanning all the buses).
We opened bugzilla 10534 but haven't yet seen any responses to it. My
co-worker Dan Yeisley has written a patch (see below) that fixes the
