I don't know how significant it is, but I remember people complaining
about adding new PCI quirks because it takes too long for them to run
them all. That was in the discussion about the quirk disabling ATS on
AMD Stoney systems.
So it probably depends on how many PCI devices are in the system whether
it causes any measureable slowdown.
