The file is not exactly overloaded with comments. Practically the only
useful comment is a description of how to report new devices (shown
A simple search in the file revealed this section:

/* PROCEDURE TO REPORT NEW PCI DEVICES
* We are trying to collect information on new PCI devices, using
* the standard PCI identification procedure. If some warning is
* displayed at boot time, please report
* - /proc/pci
* - your exact hardware description. Try to find out
* which device is unknown. It may be you mainboard chipset.
* PCI-CPU bridge or PCI-ISA bridge.
* - If you can't find the actual information in your hardware
* booklet, try to read the references of the chip on the board.
* - Send all that to email@example.com,
* and I'll add your device to the list as soon as possible
* BEFORE you send a mail, please check the latest linux releases
* to be sure it has not been recently added.
