I like Tomasz's patches, where the MCFG quirk itself is in
acpi/pci_mcfg.c, and it uses config accessors exported from

I do not want to end up with duplicate accessors. The mapping
functions and accessors should be the same whether we're booting with

I think a patch to add ACPI support should only contain:

- acpi/pci_mcfg.c quirks to fix incorrect ACPI MCFG resources or use
special accessors,

- pnp/quirks.c quirks to compensate for missing ACPI _CRS for the
ECAM regions, and

- pci-xgene.c code to derive the csr_base and cfg_base. Today we
get that from DT, but the _CRS producer/consumer mess means we
don't have a good way to get it from ACPI, so you'll need some
sort of quirk for this.

This information is needed whether booting with DT or ACPI, so we
should use the existing xgene_pcie_port.csr_base and initialize it
differently depending on which we're using.

We're not *adding* any new resources that need ioremapping; all we're
doing is changing the *source* of the resource, so we should use the
same devm_ioremap_resource() you already have in xgene_pcie_map_reg().
You might have to refactor that slightly so we can lookup the resource
via either DT or ACPI (you'll probably actually use a quirk since ACPI
doesn't have a good mechanism for this), and then use the same call to
