It should be easy enough to move the release function next to the
one that does the allocation. If we go the other route of having
a generic pci_host_alloc() function that every host driver has to
call instead of kzalloc(), we can probably drop the need to specify
a release function in each driver.

Ah, you are right, that was a mistake. As I said, I have not
tried running the code. I left this out of pci_register_host()
for compatibility with pci_create_root_bus(), which also doesn't
scan the bus, but then I didn't notice that I effectively remove
the scan during the conversion of this driver.

I was actually thinking we could move both the scan and all the code
above into pci_register_host(), based on some flags or other struct members
we assign in the pci_host_bridge structure, with the most common combination
being the default.

I'm still unsure why we need to do the pci_fixup_irqs() instead of
having the normal irq setting do the right thing, but if necessary,
the host driver can set a flag to ask the core to do it, or we could
add an optional function pointer to the of_irq_parse_and_map_pci
function (or a host specific one if needed) to struct pci_ops and
the call pci_common_swizzle with that.

For all the other stuff (size_bridges, assign_resources, configure_settings,
add_devices), I'd say a host driver should not really have to worry about
this unless it needs to do something special inbetween. Of course
we can't do it for the existing pci_scan_root_bus() etc, because the
callers expect it not to be done.
