Hi Bjorn,

For one of our earlier boards I don't think that it had any essential
devices on the host bridge. But I need to find out about possibility of
removal. Hmmm.

Further to the topic of supporting hotplug and unregistering IO port
regions, we don't even release IO port regions in the error path of PCI
host enumeration. We have pci_register_io_range(), but no unregister
equivalent.

Looking at the history here, pci_register_io_range() was originally in
OF code. And in the OF code, calling pci_register_io_range() is a
side-effect of parsing the device tree. As such, I can see why there was
no unregister function.

It would be worth noting this discussion, where the same was mentioned:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-pci/20180403140410.GE27789@ulmo/

The tegra PCI host probe can defer, but, since there is no tidy-up of
pci_register_io_range() when deferring, we need to ensure that the port
IO management code can handle re-attempts to register the same range.

It looks like this can be cleaned up also.

Thanks,
John
