We can certainly do both: small helpers that let you shrink the powerpc
code, and a generic implementation that can be shared by some of the
other architectures that you don't use. The PCI core already uses
a number of 'weak' functions here, and we can expand on that.

We probably should. The ARM code currently assumes that each I/O
space is 64KB, but for a generic implementation we probably want
to handle both smaller and larger windows. I suggested not supporting
more than 1MB though, which is the maximum that I can see a reason
for, i.e. the pci-mvebu fake host bridge that has to combine
multiple per-port HW I/O spaces into one logical space.

As I noticed later, the first patch in the series actually changes
the range_to_resource parser to return the logical start here, which
would make the offset correct even on powerpc, but unfortunately
I think that cannot work.

I thought this at first too, but as Liviu mentioned, this does
get caught later when trying to create the root bus with
a conflicting number.

What the above code cannot do is to put multiple host bridges
into the same domain, using distinct bus ranges. This is an
intentional simplification over what some architectures currently
do, and we could not see a reason why you would still need
to put multiple host bridges into one domain in 2014.

x86 with ACPI does it, but they won't call of_create_pci_host_bridge.
