I guess its fine.. In answer to the original query. It seems that this
PCIe bridge requires explicit cache operations for DMA from PCIe
endpoints. This wasn't obvious to me at first reading because I was
assuming the custom DMA ops were strictly to deal with the stated DMA
limits.

So if you end up respinning, it still might be worthy mentioning
somewhere that this is a non-coherent PCIe implementation. I still hold
much of my original reservations about pieces of this driver.
Particularly, how it might look if someone wanted to boot the RPi using
ACPI on linux. But, I was shown a clever bit of AML recently, which
solves those problems for the RPi and the attached XHCI.

So, given how much time I've looked at the root port configuration/etc
sections of this driver and I've not found a serious bug:
