PCI Device and Driver Matching

Q: Our device does not have enough space in the expansion ROM to include an FCode image. The documentation seems to say that, if the Mac finds no "name" property for our device during the boot process, it creates one with a value of pci<vendorID>,<deviceID>. Does this mean that we should set our name as pci<vendorID>,<deviceID> in our DriverDescription?

A: Yes. A name property does not use much space in the expansion ROM. You can put your driver in the Extension Folder and the name property in the ROM, and then use your verdorID, if you have the ROM space.
