There are a lot more intel chipsets that can do PCI-e, 
7221,7230,945,955,955X comes to mind. Not to mention chipsets from 
nVidia, VIA and Broadcom ...

Does anything actually use the values obtained by these probes?

Also why is this in sys/i386? Most of these support EM64T CPU:s and 
should be shared with amd64 (or machine independant).
