I think what George meant is the following (please correct me if I
understood you wrong) and has nothing to do with PCIe functions:

The chipcommon and PCIe core registers seem to be always available on
PCIe and no core switching is necessary for them. So as long as you
only access the core registers of chipcommon, PCIe + one other core,
you never need to do any switching (except for the initial switch to
the other core)

But If you need to access the agent registers you do have to do adapt
the PCIe windows.

(This seems to apply also to PCI cards with a PCI core revision >= 13,
but this is probably only relevant for SSB - unless Arend says there
are/were also PCI cards with AMBA AXI backplanes ;-).
