In theory it's the same, in practice there *might* be non-compliant
devices which lack support for the discovery feature.

The existing attributes "vendor", "device" etc do emit the "0x".

>From drivers/pci/pci-sysfs.c:

pci_config_attr(vendor, "0x%04x\n");
pci_config_attr(device, "0x%04x\n");
pci_config_attr(subsystem_vendor, "0x%04x\n");
pci_config_attr(subsystem_device, "0x%04x\n");
pci_config_attr(revision, "0x%02x\n");
pci_config_attr(class, "0x%06x\n");

What's the purpose of sysfs_initialized anyway?

It was introduced by this historic commit:

Can PCI_ROM_RESOURCEs appear after device enumeration but before
the late_initcall stage?

If sysfs_initialized is only needed for PCI_ROM_RESOURCEs, can we
constrain pci_sysfs_init() to those and avoid creating all the
other runtime sysfs attributes in the initcall?
