Sorry for previous empty email.

What I meant to write:

Right now we do error checking for dbi_base in platform specific code
and in pcie-designware-host.c:dw_pcie_host_init.

For dbi_base2, you've added error checking in platform specific code
(pci-dra7xx.c), but I don't see any error checking in your patch proposal
If you add error checking in dw_pcie_ep_init, then I agree,
we don't need any error checking in dw_pcie_writel_dbi2.
