Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] powerpc/pci: Add config option for using OF 'reg' for PCI domain
Since commit 63a72284b159 ("powerpc/pci: Assign fixed PHB number based on
device-tree properties"), powerpc kernel always fallback to PCI domain
assignment from OF / Device Tree 'reg' property of the PCI controller.

In most cases 'reg' property is not zero and therefore there it cause that
PCI domain zero is not present in system anymore.

PCI code for other Linux architectures use increasing assignment of the PCI
domain for individual controllers (assign the first free number), like it
was also for powerpc prior mentioned commit. Also it starts numbering
domains from zero.

Upgrading powerpc kernels from LTS 4.4 version (which does not contain
mentioned commit) to new LTS versions brings a change in domain assignment.

It can be problematic for embedded machines with single PCIe controller
where it is expected that PCIe card is connected on the domain zero.
Also it can be problematic as that commit changes PCIe domains in
multi-controller setup with fixed number of controller (without hotplug

Originally that change was intended for powernv and pservers and specially
server machines with more PCI domains or hot plug support.

Fix this issue and introduce a new option CONFIG_PPC_PCI_DOMAIN_FROM_OF_REG.
When this option is disabled then powerpc kernel would assign PCI domains
in the similar way like it is doing kernel for other architectures,
starting from zero and also how it was done prior that commit.

This option is by default enabled for powernv and pseries platform for which
was that commit originally intended.

With this change upgrading kernels from LTS 4.4 version does not change PCI
domain on smaller embedded platforms with fixed number of PCIe controllers.
And also ensure that PCI domain zero is present as before that commit.
