Subject[PATCH v6 3/3] PCI: Add DMA alias quirk for PLX PEX NTB
The PLX PEX NTB forwards DMA transactions using Requester ID's that
don't exist as PCI devices. The devfn for a transaction is used as an
index into a lookup table storing the origin of a transaction on the
other side of the bridge.

This patch aliases all possible devfn's to the NTB device so that any
transaction coming in is governed by the mappings for the NTB.
