I don't think you can use the dw_pcie_ops as-is anyway, as they in
turn rely on the device driver structure, and you also don't need
those as they seem to be written for the generic case of a 32-bit
architecture that does not have enough space to map the entire
config space into MMIO. Just set up all those mapping registers from
the firmware and pass the config space base address as you'd normally
do on ACPI.
