Providing separate copies for read_config and write_config makes sense,
what I wanted to avoid was 3 sets of brcm_pcie_read_config and
brcm_pcie_write_config, because that would be duplicating quite some
code, working on that now.

OK, I have actually stated doing just that.

Technically yes, there are for the attached PCI slots, not the hsost
bridge, so their are misplaced, we need to rework that, and I would
prefer if there was a way to make it pre-scan type of operation offered
by the core PCI code itself, but then there is a chicken and egg
problem: you cannot get regulators for device_nodes that have not been
created yet, and you can't create pci_device and their corresponding
device_nodes until you have turned them on...

What I meant to say is that we want to avoid programming a SCB window
(SCB equals memory controller for the sake of making things simple here)
which does not have a baking memory controller, because, well, guess
what happens, the PCIe RC could be trying to access non existent memory,
and just stall doing so because no error reporting, I can't remember
which chips had this problem exactly, but there were definitively some,
so the concern is real.

The "brcm,log2-scb-sizes" should be correctly populated all the time in
our Device Tree blobs, but we are not quite making a use of them here.

"dma-ranges" seems like an appropriate solution, but sorts of forces us
to reinforce the same information that is available somewhere in the
Device Tree within the memory controllers nodes themselves.

Let me think about this some more.
