I think all the drivers in drivers/pci/host use 'reg', this was
discussed in the dt-bindings list and AFAIK no new drivers have used
ranges since it was brought up.

When we talked about this earlier on the DT bindings list the
consensus seemed to be that configuration MMIO ranges should only be
used if the underlying memory was exactly ECAM, and was not to be used
for random configuration related register blocks.

The rational being that generic code, upon seeing that ranges entry,
could just go ahead and assume ECAM mapping.
