Hi Florian,

Just an FYI, the pcie-xilinx driver I wrote this for has since been
converted away from the ARM-like pci_common_init_dev & struct hw_pci to
use only functions provided by the core PCI subsystem[1]. As a result
I've stopped using this patch & don't plan to continue work on it.
Perhaps it would be cleanest to do a similar conversion for the driver
you're using?

Thanks,
Paul
