+* **PCI bus API moved outside of the EAL**
+ The PCI bus previously implemented within the EAL has been moved.
+ A first part has been added as an RTE library providing PCI helpers to
+ parse device locations or other such utilities.
+ A second part consisting in the actual bus driver has been moved to its
+ proper subdirectory, without changing its functionalities.
+ As such, several PCI-related functions are not proposed by the EAL anymore:
+ * rte_pci_detach
+ * rte_pci_dump
+ * rte_pci_ioport_map
+ * rte_pci_ioport_read
+ * rte_pci_ioport_unmap
+ * rte_pci_ioport_write
+ * rte_pci_map_device
+ * rte_pci_probe
+ * rte_pci_probe_one
+ * rte_pci_read_config
+ * rte_pci_register
+ * rte_pci_scan
+ * rte_pci_unmap_device
+ * rte_pci_unregister
+ * rte_pci_write_config
+ These functions are made available either as part of ``librte_pci`` or
