All architectures that memory map the PCI IO range should be supported by my version of
pci_address_to_pio(). But that still leaves the x86 and those architectures that have
separate IO space or map it 1:1 into CPU address space to carry a different version (which
the current "generic" weak version catters for).

A version of the pci_register_io_range() that uses part of pci_ioremap_io() (the calculation
of io_offset part).

My ultimate point is that no matter how long we argue about the shape of the functions that
I've added into arch/arm64/kernel/pci.c I don't think we can get away without having that
file, or at least not in the first phase if we want speedy integration into mainline.

Best regards,
