While I appreciate the sentiment, I would rather not have an
excessive amount of detail added to this page.

The idea behind it was to show users that they shouldn't expect the
address in the domain XML to match the one in the guest OS, with a
few real-life examples to illustrate the point. So, I don't think
the details of how exactly zPCI IDs translate to guest-visible PCI
addresses is in scope.

It would be great information to have in some other document, though!
Is there something like that in qemu.git, or in the QEMU wiki? Those
are the places where I would expect it to live, since it's not really
tied to libvirt...
