But how can I find it from the udevinfo output on the dvb nodes?  I
get a variation on the above for each device node in
/dev/dvb/adapterN/$FILE I try, and it doesn't go up to the root for
any of them.  If I try a different device entirely (my wireless card),
I can find the PCI bus info.  Eg:

# udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/net/wifi0
  looking at device '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0':

That's the kind of info I want, and which seems to be missing for
my dvb devices.
