Whilst it's great to have detailed feedback, just to make it clear...

This is an RFC for the reasons above. They include that the hardware
is still in development - i.e. we can't test it because they've not finished
implementation yet.

The intention of posting so early is to get some feedback on the general
approach and the specific points in 2,3 and 4 above.

The key fiddly point with this is that it is a shared PMU across a set
of PCIe Root Ports (there are several of these devices on each SoC in
the system covering a set of ports each).
That makes for a somewhat fiddly interface, hence the RFC.

Thanks to everyone who has reviewed though as definitely some stuff for liuqi to
fix!
