Subject[PATCH 01/19] pci: introduce an pci_ioremap(pdev, barnr) function
The patch below introduces a pci_ioremap() function that should make it easier for
driver authors to do the right thing for the simple, common case.

There's also 18 patches that introduce users of this; to reduce lkml noise I've only
stuck them in a git tree at

Subject: [PATCH 01/19] pci: introduce an pci_ioremap(pdev, barnr) function

A common thing in many PCI drivers is to ioremap() an entire bar.
This is a slightly fragile thing right now, needing both an address and a size,
and many driver writers do.. various things there.

This patch introduces an pci_ioremap() function taking just a PCI device struct
and the bar number as arguments, and figures this all out itself, in one place.
In addition, we can add various sanity checks to this function (the patch already
checks to make sure that the bar in question really is a MEM bar; few to no drivers
do that sort of thing).

Hopefully with this type of API we get less chance of mistakes in drivers with
ioremap() operations.
