No, It's not like it decodes only the lower 28bits. The BARs is programmed with
32 bit value.

My pcie dt node has
 ranges = <0x00000800 0 0x20001000 0x20001000 0 0x00002000  /* CONFIG */
           0x81000000 0 0          0x20003000 0 0x00010000  /* IO */
           0x82000000 0 0x20013000 0x20013000 0 0xffed000>; /* MEM */

Consider MEM address space..

Here both PCI address and CPU address is 0x20013000. So when there is a write
to cpu addr 0x20013000 [writel(virt_addr(0x20013000)], we want it to be
translated to PCI addr 0x20013000. So in 'ATU', we would expect *base* to be
programmed to *0x20013000* and target to be programmed to *0x20013000*. But
that's not the case for DRA7xx. For DRA7xx *base* should be programmed to
*0x0013000* and target should be programmed to *0x20013000*.
