It looks like you can already reviewed Tomasz's patchset and as Lorenzo
says thinks that it can be merged.

When I first posted the patchset the state of arm64 ACPI/PCI was not that
clear - and I thought an alternative will help. Ideally I would expect
maintainers to look at technical merit, but in this case any working solution
merged will be great news.
