According to the block diagram, the PCIe-PCIe bridge handles only WiFi, 3G/LTE and a MiniPCIe x1 slot. Everything else is handled either by direct PCIe connection (MXM, USB3, SATA3/M.2/eSATA) or by other SoC controllers (Ethernet, audio, input devices, SD slot, SATA2, webcam etc.).
Btw, I wonder what became of the originally announced Bluetooth.
