the reason why we need to change those codes for x86, we want to make it support
pci root bus hotplug. So it would be reasonable for us to align other
platform to x86
changes after pci root bus hotplug change is completely done.
Also I have for_dev_each_res patches rely on this patchset.
After those done, we can move the code from x86 to drivers/pci and delete
other arches code one by one.
