That is a BUG(). Please turn on verbose bug reporting to get more
information about the cause.
There are two possibilities:
BUG_ON(addr >= end);
It's probably the latter - the region is probably already mapped, that
being the PCI IO region.
The original driver was setup to call pci_ioremap_io() as the very
last thing - and as the driver is non-removable, we were guaranteed
to never tear down this mapping (which is sensible, it's published
However, the current code calls pci_ioremap_io() much earlier, in
a path where probe failures can occur. This breaks pci_ioremap_io()'s
requirements - it must not be called more than once. So:
ee1604381a37 ("PCI: mvebu: Only remap I/O space if configured")
is basically incorrect - pci_ioremap_io() needs to move back to a
place where it is only called in a path which will never fail.
However, looking at the generic host bits, I'm not sure such a place
exists in the new effort to make stuff more generic.
