This text doesn't make much sense.. Calling
pcie_bus_configure_settings is just a good thing to do, the fact it
helps avoid a HW defect in a specific PCI-E implementation is not the
main reason to add this to the core ARM code.

 Call pcie_bus_configure_settings on ARM, like for other
 platforms. pcie_bus_configure_settings makes sure the MPS across the
 bus is uniform and provides the ability to tune the MRSS and MPS to
 higher performance values.

 This is particularly important for embedded where there is no
 firmware to program these PCI-E settings for the OS.

Missing indent.
