Pretty much *all* the devices which VirtualBox implements are virtual, 
and a large portion of them are PCI devices. So these can serve as 
samples: AHCI, IDE, SCSI, OHCI and more.

VirtualBox is open source, so you can see the entire source, and for a 
couple of simple ISA devices we have sample code which is not used 
actively in VirtualBox, but is present in the tree.
