We were talking about this in the other wrong patch. I also think this
much space looks wrong. The current ipq806x dts have this space so it's
actually broken from a long time. The only reason pci worked before was
because the pci driver didn't actually check if the settings were right.
New kernel introduced more checks and this problem showed up. (to be
more precise, the pci port are commonly used by the ath10k wifi and the
second ath10k wifi fails to init because of this problem)
If you can give me any hint on how to check if the space can be reduced
I would be very happy to investigate it.
In the driver I notice that the max buffer is set to 2k, could be this a
