Thanks for going through this. No, this is not where we are seeing the failure.
May be I was not clear in my earlier mail. The failure happens in SMMUv3
driver probe function when it calls devm_ioremap_resource().

It looks like, in IORT code,

iort_add_platform_device()--> platform_device_add()-->insert_resource(), inserts
both SMMUv3 and PMCG resources into the resource tree and then when the probe
of SMMUv3 is called, it detects the conflict.

[ 85.548749] arm-smmu-v3 arm-smmu-v3.0.auto: can't request region for resource [mem 0x148000000-0x14801ffff]

Of course, changing devm_ioremap_resource() to devm_ioremap() in SMMv3
driver probe solves the issue for us, but not sure that's the right approach or not.

Thanks,
Shameer
