Additionally there's a bunch of resigters controlling the mapping of
various MMIO regions of the BMC PCIe device to portions of the BMC
address space. I'm not sure what's the best way to handle that.

This specific set might require a dedicated device as a subnode of
the SCU in the DT that contains all the mappings as properties...

That or we consider them static enough and just whack it in u-boot.
