I am not sure where this 0xfee00000 address comes from, but in my case
(and I think in the Tegra PCI driver as well), we tell the Linux PCI
core from which addresses the I/O ranges should be allocated. In my DT,
ranges = <0x00000800 0 0xd0040000 0xd0040000 0 0x00002000 /* port 0.0 registers */
0x00004800 0 0xd0042000 0xd0042000 0 0x00002000 /* port 2.0 registers */
0x00001000 0 0xd0044000 0xd0044000 0 0x00002000 /* port 0.1 registers */
0x00001800 0 0xd0048000 0xd0048000 0 0x00002000 /* port 0.2 registers */
0x00002000 0 0xd004C000 0xd004C000 0 0x00002000 /* port 0.3 registers */
0x00002800 0 0xd0080000 0xd0080000 0 0x00002000 /* port 1.0 registers */
0x00005000 0 0xd0082000 0xd0082000 0 0x00002000 /* port 3.0 registers */
0x00003000 0 0xd0084000 0xd0084000 0 0x00002000 /* port 1.1 registers */
0x00003800 0 0xd0088000 0xd0088000 0 0x00002000 /* port 1.2 registers */
0x00004000 0 0xd008C000 0xd008C000 0 0x00002000 /* port 1.3 registers */
0x81000000 0 0 0xc0000000 0 0x00100000 /* downstream I/O */
0x82000000 0 0 0xc1000000 0 0x08000000>; /* non-prefetchable memory */
And then, the Marvell PCI driver gets the "downstream I/O" range,
parses it into a "struct resource", and then does (where &pcie->io is
the struct resource into which we parsed the "downstream I/O" range):
pci_add_resource_offset(&sys->resources, &pcie->io, sys->io_offset);
pci_ioremap_io(nr * SZ_64K, pcie->io.start);
And it works just fine, I get my I/O ranges allocated at 0xc0000000 for
the first device, 0xc0010000 (i.e base address + 64KB) for the second
The Tegra PCI driver does exactly the same (I shamelessly copied what
Thierry has done).
I somehow have the feeling that we are looking for problems that simply
