[PATCHv2 0/3] PCI: emulated PCI bridge config space

The pci-mvebu driver already contains some logic to emulate a root
port PCI bridge configuration space. It turns out that we have a
similar need for the pci-aardvark driver. Instead of duplicating the
same logic in two drivers, this patch series starts by adding a small
common infrastructure that helps emulate a root port PCI bridge config
space, converts pci-mvebu to use it, and finally extends pci-aardvark
to use it as well.

Thanks to this, Marvell Armada 3720 based systems, which use the
Aarkvark PCI controller, will have better PCI support, by having a
root port PCI bridge exposed.

The emulated PCI bridge common logic is a proposal, I very much
welcome comments and suggestions. Also, if you feel that adding a
common logic for only two drivers is too early, I'm fine with
duplicating a bit of code betwen pci-mvebu and pci-aardvark.

In this version 2, I have (hopefully) taken into account the comments
from Bjorn Helgaas and Russell King. Here are the changes:

 - Rebased to 4.19-rc1

 - The functions implementing the config space read/write emulation
   now have the knowledge of which registers/bits are read-only,
   read-write, reserved and write-1-to-clear, and behave according to
   this information.

 - I have renamed the function to use conf_read() and conf_write()
   suffixes, as suggested by Bjorn.

 - The whole thing is now named pci-bridge-emul instead of
   pci-sw-bridge (and of course all functions, types and macros were
   changed accordingly), as Bjorn wasn't happy about pci-sw-bridge.

 - The header file was moved into drivers/pci (instead of being in

Thanks a lot in advance for your review and feedback.

Best regards,
