But in general, booting with "pci=nomsi" should still work, at least
for debugging purposes. It's hard to believe the chip designers forgot
to connect the one wire.
You said that the PCI host is SBSA compliant, so it must according to
section 8.4 have the legacy interrupts wired up to SPI lines in the GIC.

Ah, right. I checked the source code again and it seems that we don't handle
this right at the moment. I think a range that has the nonrelocatable
flag set should be used for IORESOURCE_PCI_FIXED mappings without any
host specific code, but that needs to be implemented in common code.

IIRC others have reported problems in the same area before, and that
turned out to be a resource that was not registered correctly. What
do you see in /proc/iomem without your workaround?

The device resources should be nested within the bus resources, as you would
e.g. find on my PC system:
dc000000-dcffffff : PCI Bus 0000:40
dcc00000-dcefffff : PCI Bus 0000:41
dcce0000-dccfffff : 0000:41:00.0
dcd00000-dcefffff : PCI Bus 0000:42
dcd00000-dcdfffff : PCI Bus 0000:45
dcdef800-dcdeffff : 0000:45:00.0
dcdef800-dcdeffff : ahci
