This controller is for on-board PCI devices and all of them do support

Is this flag part of DT pci node properties ?
I am using IORESOURCE_PCI_FIXED flag. Its there in other patches of
the same series.

I tried but wasn't sure if its going to impact existing SRIOV devices.
Will have a deeper look again .

Isn't that host driver calls "request_resource" only for resources of root port.
i.e requesting from iomem_resource/ioport_resource. Here i am referring
to SRIOV devices enumerated upon scan of root port.
