This looks great.

What about the PCI_PROBE_ONLY test in pci_common_init_dev()?  Don't we
need to either remove that test (if it's impossible to get there with
PCI_PROBE_ONLY set), or add a pci_bus_claim_resources() call as we did
in pci_host_common_probe()?

I think it's unlikely that we'd get to pci_common_init_dev() with

  - the only way to set PCI_PROBE_ONLY on ARM is to call

  - the only ARM caller of of_pci_check_probe_only() is

  - pci_host_common_probe() doesn't call pci_common_init_dev().

But I guess it's possible to imagine a platform with both a generic
PCI bridge and a MVEBU, R-Car, or Tegra bridge.  Then
pci_host_common_probe() could set PCI_PROBE_ONLY, and we'd claim
resources under the generic bridge via the previous patch, but still
not claim those under the MVEBU bridge.  Then enabling the MVEBU
devices would fail.

I know this is a ridiculous scenario, but the code looks inconsistent
as it is.
