And that's what you should not do. ACPI tables have to have a 1:1
correspondence with HW resources and you must not change them to
make the kernel (which version by the way, given that ARM64 ACPI PCI
support is not in the mainline) work. I already said that: we must not
interpret ACPI tables, we must define them according to specifications,
and that's what everyone should follow to write FW.
So, why does your PCI IO range starts at 1k ? Please define what you
mean by "kernel didn't accept anything below 1k", I want to understand
what you are referring to.
