Ah - yes if I recall correctly my assumption was that the MIPS-specific
struct pci_controller was only used by the MIPS-specific PCI drivers
under arch/mips/pci/, which are only built when configured for the
appropriate platform.

In this case use of that MIPS-specific struct pci_controller has spread
beyond arch/mips/ & the user can be configured in for platforms other
than the one that will actually use the driver, including the generic
platform which moves towards more generic PCI drivers in
drivers/pci/host/.

Likewise, with the "Fixes:" tag fixed:
