Interesting, so it's not PCI compliant then? I assume this will be fixed
in the production version of the silicon, right?
Having no support for interrupts mean that the majority of PCI device drivers

I think you need to mark the ones that are nonrelocatable with flag
0x80000000, otherwise the PCI core might decide to reassign them.

I don't understand. Isn't that just a bug in the code that you are working
around with the DT. Have you tried fixing the code instead?

My guess is that you are using the wrong interface here. Isn't the normal
request_resource() in the host driver enough?
