text file briefly describing bug identification and resolution
Since 8.0 is out, a patch against 7.3 probably doesn't make much sense.
I hope the function name, pci_scan_bus, the fact that it is a one line
and the problem (methods is NULL) should make resolving this straight forward.
Fixed in 2.1.10-7, thanks!
