I thought about that and did not do it because here we are remapping
resources that are _not_ PCI bus resources (ie it is not PCI BARs we
are remapping), keeping the devm_* prefix would be more consistent
to the typical device drivers remapping functions pattern (ie a
typical PCI host controller driver would mix devm_ and pcim_ calls
which is a bit hard to parse), that was my rationale.

I am not too fussed about that either way, I am happy to update it to
pcim_* though, it is Bjorn/Arnd's decision.

I do not understand what you mean here I would ask you to elaborate
a bit more please so that I can do something about it.

Thanks !
