Some implementations of the Synopsys dw PCIe IP contain a 'root port'
(within quotes because it is not actually a root port but an arbitrary
set of MMIO registers that looks like a type 01 config region) that
does not permit the prefetchable bridge window BAR to be written (a
thing which is apparently permitted by the PCIe spec). So while the
host bridge is capable of supporting more than one MMIO BAR window,
the OS visible software interface does not expose this functionality

In practice, it probably doesn't matter, since the driver uses the
same iATU attributes for prefetchable and non-prefetchable windows,
but I guess 1 GB of MMIO BAR space is a bit restrictive for modern
systems.
