While I'm not too happy that we are now going to have multiple paths to
those PCIe related control bits in the driver, I totally agree that we
should stop abusing the reset API for things that aren't a reset.

Maybe we should even go all the way and switch the APPS_EN bit
manipulation to use the regmap instead of the reset. This would be a DT
compatible change, as we would just ignore the apps reset specified in
old DTs and don't require any DT changes for this to work if the regmap
is looked up by compatible.

Lucas
