"Speedy integration into mainline" is another way to say "leave it for
others to deal with and clean up later."

I've successfully used the preceeding series on ARM converting the
Versatile PCI support to use it. The main part of the process was just
copying this arm64 code to arm which tells me the code is in the wrong
place. There are still some differences in pcibios_fixup_bus, and it
is not clear to me whether the arm version should be doing all the
things the arm64 version does and vice-versa. Certainly that should be
sorted out. The other issues I see is pci_ioremap_io still has to be
called by the driver and is not aligned at least for the prototype as
I pointed out. Seems all these issues could be fixed with a simple
CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_MMIO_IOSPACE kconfig option.
