Ideally, they should all be the same CPU address so we only have to map the window
once, each device gets an address below 64K, and you can have legacy port numbers
(below 4K) on any bus, which is required to make certain GPUs work.

I haven't actually seen anyone do that on ARM though, every implementation so
far has a separate mapping per host bridge, and we can cope with that too,
and we can live with either overlapping bus addresses or unique bus addresses,
any of them can be expressed by the PCI core in Linux, we just have to make sure
that we correctly translate the firmware tables into our internal structures.
