My understnading is that since writel() of dw_pcie_writel_rc() in
above code and readl(), writel() of dw_pcie_cfg_[read|write]() (which
will follow) goes through same device (ie PCIe host here). So, it is
guaranteed that 1st writel() will be executed before later
readl()/writel(). If that is true then we do not need any explicit
Arnd, Russel: whats your opinion here.
