Looks good, applied and queued up for -stable, thanks.

Just a note, I am assuming that the VFs are not instantiated in the
device tree. Because when you just memcpy the arch data over from the
PF, one thing we end up doing is using the device node of the PF.

I slightly cringed at the memcpy, because at least one of these
pointers are to objects which are reference counted, the OF device.

Generally speaking we don't really support hot-plug for OF probed
devices, but if we did all of the device tree pointers have to be
refcounted properly.

So in the long term that whole sequence where we go:

struct dev_archdata *sd;
sd = &dev->dev.archdata;
sd->iommu = pbm->iommu;
sd->stc = &pbm->stc;
sd->host_controller = pbm;
sd->op = op = of_find_device_by_node(node);
sd->numa_node = pbm->numa_node;

should be encapsulated into a helper function, and both
of_create_pci_dev() and this new pcibios_setup_device() can
invoke it.
