Do you mean to remove pci_sys_data from pci-host-generic.c or removing
it completely? I assume the former case.

So, looking at the current code in the pci-host-generic.c, my
understanding is that the:
*gen_pci = pci_bus->sysdata->private_data
will be changed to:
*gen_pci = pci_bus->sysdata

Then, we can simply just call pci_scan_root_bus() directly since we no
longer need to declare hw_pci for calling pci_common_init_dev().

Thanks for cleaning up the domain and mem_offset.

I saw Marc's irq/msi_domain patch series

My understanding is that deals with associating the newly introduced
msi_domain to each device, which replaces the need for pci_bus->msi and
hw_pci->msi_ctrl when configure with CONFIG_PCI_MSI_IRQ_DOMAIN (not sure
if this would be the plan for all arm32). For ARM32, if not define
CONFIG_PCI_MSI_IRQ_DOMAIN, it would still fall back to using the

However, I noticed that the hw_pci->msi_controller is not even used for
the pci-host-generic. So, this should not be blocking the work to free
pci-host-generic from pci_sys_data and hw_pci, as the MSI stuff can go
in separately. Am I missing something?

Thanks for the update and the summary. I'll help review/test the MSI
patch once posted.
