I updated the patch as follows and rebased my "next" branch to include it:

commit e664f5bd55247bba3a6ebd61f83d6c9cd87ce0de

    PCI: Use pci_device_id on stack for pci_get_subsys/class() to avoid kmalloc
    
    This fixes a kernel warning https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/7/31/682
    
    pci_get_subsys() may get called in late system reboot stage, using
    a sleepable kmalloc() sounds fragile and will cause a kernel warning
    with my recent commmit 55c844a "x86/reboot: Fix a warning message
    triggered by stop_other_cpus()" which disable local interrupt in
    late system shutdown/reboot phase. Using a local parameter instead
    will fix it and make it eligible for calling forom atomic context.
    
    Do the same change for the pci_get_class() as suggested by Bjorn Helgaas
