As far as I can tell, the DT child devices underneath a PCIe device
don't get probed and drivers loaded automatically - possibly for valid
reasons. The MFD driver appears to be required in order to actually get
drivers attached to those DT nodes.

Right now those devices are ending up with no memory resources unless
they are injected through the MFD cells. It would be handy if the memory
resources were mapped automatically from the PCIe BARs to the
sub-devices, to avoid duplicating information in the DT and the driver,
but even if that was solved it wouldn't avoid the need for this patch,
as the devices would still end up attached to the wrong DT node and pick
up the wrong properties.

The other reason we need the MFD driver is we are implementing an IRQ
domain to map the interrupts from the PCIe device to the child nodes,
and using some of those callbacks to poke other registers on the PCIe to
assist with converting the level-triggered AXI interrupts to
edge-triggered MSIs.

This is what the outer DT leading up to what I showed earlier looks like.

&pcie {
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_pcie>;
reset-gpio = <&gpio7 12 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>;
status = "okay";

pci_rootport: pcie@0,0 {
reg = <0x83000000 0 0 0 0>;
#address-cells = <3>;
#size-cells = <2>;
ranges;

fpga_pcie: pcie@1,0 {
reg = <0x2010000 0 0 0 0>;
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <1>;
interrupt-controller;
#interrupt-cells = <1>;

...

axi_iic_0: i2c@c0000 {
compatible = "xlnx,xps-iic-2.00.a";
clocks = <&axi_clk>;
clock-frequency = <100000>;
interrupts = <7>;
#size-cells = <0>;
#address-cells = <1>;
};

axi_iic_1: i2c@d0000 {
compatible = "xlnx,xps-iic-2.00.a";
clocks = <&axi_clk>;
clock-frequency = <100000>;
interrupts = <8>;
#size-cells = <0>;
#address-cells = <1>;
};
};
};
};
