After more investigation on the spec and the ACPI core code, I'm
still not convinced that accessing to PCI config space before PCI
bus creating is impossible, also there is no enough ARM64 hardware
to prove that too. But I think we can go in this way, reuse the
ECAM implementation by pci-host-generic for now, and implement the PCI
accessor functions before enumerating PCI bus when needed in the
future, does it make sense?

Thanks
