Confirmed that this patchset gives working PCI (tested with a
sata_via PCI card and disk) on PB926, and working PCI except
for busmaster DMA on PB1176 (same test setup, booting with
libata.dma=0). (Without the patchset PCI doesn't work at all
because the sata_via driver crashes the first time it tries an
I/O access, so even without the 1176 busmastering it's a huge
improvement over the existing situation.)
