below are the flags which were discussed in first version of the
series, but since the driver is
currently using just PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_NON_MULTI_ALLOC flag I'll be
dropping them in
next version (suggested by Kishon) and rest will be added as and when
required by the driver.

* @PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_MULTI_ALLOC: Indicates multiple chunks of memory can be
* allocated from same window
* @PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_NON_MULTI_ALLOC: Indicates only single memory allocation
* is possible on the window
* @PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_LARGE_ALLOC: Window is used for large memory allocation
* @PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_SMALL_ALLOC: Window is used for small memory allocation
* @PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_HIGH_PRI_ALLOC: Window is used for high priority data
* transfers
* @PCI_EPC_WINDOW_FLAG_LOW_PRI_ALLOC: Window is used for low priority data
* transfers

Cheers,
