Okay.
I should fix it to find any mapping within PCI reserved region.
But, I think that it is not an error.
Now, I see your original commit 'c2794437091a4fda72c4a4f3567dd728dcc0c3c9'
and find below message.

"Platforms which need early i/o mapping (e.g. for vga console) can call
pci_map_io_early in their .map_io function."

Therfore, for some platform, it is possible that there is a mapping within
PCI reserved range.

So, I will not add WARN here.

I will fix and re-send v6 with your ACK.

Thanks for review.
