It's not PCI, it's an sbus machine.  I think the onboard esp and hme
show up as sbus devices.  I think sbus can be probed like pci, but I
don't think discover has been trained to do so.

I think sarge d-i just modprobes esp and adds it to the list of
modules if any are detected.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
