I don't think so - I'd expect secondary cards to also be showing this
class/sub-class (but I have no system with two or more cards where
I could at least empirically check), i.e. that would only be sufficient
when there's no upstream bridge. PCI_BRIDGE_CTL_VGA (on
upstream bridges) and maybe (but unlikely)
PCI_COMMAND_VGA_PALETTE (on the device itself and perhaps also
upstream bridges) would seem to be the indicators. But I'm afraid
this really needs to be properly answered by a PCI expert.
