See the recent patch "[PATCH v4] ARM: shmobile: r8a7791: link PCI USB
devices to USB PHY" where someone does the same thing to supply additional
data to a PCI device node in shmobile.

Basically you just need to add a node under your PCI host controller node
with "reg = <0x800 0 0 0 0>" (or whatever the address is and put the
properties in there. See
for the description of how to construct the addresses.

I notice that there are no Qualcomm or Atheros PCI host controller drivers
in Linux though, so you first have to write a driver that allows probing
the PCI bus, and get the binding reviewed for that before you can add
it to the dts files. Is this for ipq8064 or something else?
