For reference, this was the initial patch using
DECLARE_PCI_FIXUP_HEADER:

Seems sensible yes.

It seems that drivers/pci/controller/pcie-iproc.c uses FIXUP functions
which access driver specific structs. I think we can get from (struct
pci_host_bridge *)->sysdata to struct pcie_port * and from there to
struct dw_pci.

I will give this a try next week.

Fine for me.
