Note that the of/pci changes needed for this driver are merged through
the arm-soc tree, with the of maintainers ACKs. They are already in
arm-soc for-next, through Jason Cooper's tree.

4e23d3f505e8acfeac7cc33d4113fbb5a25c3090 of/pci: Add of_pci_parse_bus_range() function
45ab9702fb47d18dca116b3a0509efa19fbcb27a of/pci: Add of_pci_get_devfn() function
29b635c00f3ebcdaf7a52c4948f6d948ad3757d3 of/pci: Provide support for parsing PCI DT ranges property

Also, it depends on the Marvell PCIe driver (but to a lesser extent),
which is the one that creates the drivers/pci/host/Kconfig and

45361a4fe4464180815157654aabbd2afb4848ad pci: PCIe driver for Marvell Armada 370/XP systems

I am by far not an expert on how to solve merge strategies and so on,
but to avoid conflicts at Linus's level while merging the arm-soc and
pci trees, it would be better if this Samsung PCIe driver could go
through arm-soc (with Bjorn ACK, of course), so that Arnd/Olof can
make sure the ordering is correct with regard to the of/pci changes and
the mvebu/pci driver.

I'll let you discuss that with Jason Cooper.
