There is no sure fire way to get that information anywhere, unless 
you're working with a system which has implemented PCI geographical 
addressing. Some of this is present in hotplug support. If someone pays 
for the feature, I'm sure it can get done...

Having said that you should be able to make educated guesses about where 
something is, just by looking at the bus hierarchy (e.g. using devinfo 
or similar tool). This is no different from anywhere else that 
implements PCI.
