There's a lot going on this patch.  Can you split it up at all?  For
example, maybe:

  - Revert f4c55c5a3f7f (and move to right after the related [1/6]

  - Switch to using of_pci_get_host_bridge_resources()

  - Replacing the call of pci_common_init_dev() with equivalent code in
    pcie-designware.c.  This one in particular needs to be easy to review.
    It's not clear to me that this new code is equivalent.  For example,
    pci_common_init_dev() calls pcie_bus_configure_settings(), but I don't
    see that in your new code.

You already have acks and tested-by, so I assume you probably did all the
right things, but it will help me out a lot if you can break it into
bite-sized pieces.  It's always better to make patches too small rather
than too large, because it's trivial to squash them back together if
needed.  I think we're going to have some conflicts between this and other
pcie-designware.c changes, and small patches will also make those easier to
