A word of caution for all interested parties, what we may move
to arch/arm64 (if Catalin and Will are ok with that) here is content
of drivers/acpi/pci_root_generic.c, not drivers/acpi/pci_mcfg.c (and
definitely not the MCFG quirks handling that is coming up next on top
of this series).
I just wanted to make sure we understand that MCFG quirks handling
that is coming up following this series has no chance whatsoever to
be handled within arch/arm64, it is just not going to happen.
Maybe I am jumping the gun, I just want to make sure that everyone is
aware that moving part of this series to arch/arm64 has implications,
(and that's why I said that moving part of this code to arch/arm64 is
not as simple as it looks) it may be ok to have an ACPI PCI
implementation that is arch/arm64 specific (mostly for IO space and PCI
resources assignment handling that unfortunately is not uniform across
X86, IA64 and ARM64), but MCFG quirks and related platform code stay out
of arch/arm64 I guess we are all aware of that, just wanted to make
