There are two things here: matching the root port and setting
the cfg size limit.
I agree with Bjorn that the cfg size limit, given that it is
implemented in core code should be leveraged instead of reinventing
the wheel to solve the same problem in driver specific code.
In the quirk code I do not think it is that complicated to retrieve
the IMX variant to apply the quirk accordingly on the pci_dev.
Please let me know if that's feasible so that I can drop the
patches from the branch and update it with a new version.
