The thinking here is the ranges should be well defined and general, it
isn't a dumping ground for driver specific stuff.

No spec says you can put config space into the ranges at all, nobody
should be doing that today, obviously some cases were missed during

The comment about ECAM was intended as a general guidance on what
config space in ranges could/should be used for.

Right now config space shouldn't propagate out side any driver, so you
can probably just filter it in your generic code, and make it very hard
and obviously wrong for a driver to parse ranges for config space, so
we don't get more usages.
