I'd rather not add a generic implementation of this at all, but
keep it all within the host resource scanning code.

If we do add a generic implementation, my preference would be
to use the version introduced for arm64, with a fallback of
returning -EINVAL if the architecture doesn't implement it.

There is no way ever that returning '0' makes sense here: Either
the architecture supports memory mapped I/O spaces and then we
should be able to find an appropriate io_offset for it, or it
doesn't support memory mapped I/O spaces and we should never
even call this function.
