Good point, and the inbound windows could be less than all DRAM if
there's any restrictions. However, the DWC doesn't do any inbound
setup (at least for platforms with iATU), so I guess the default is
all traffic is forwarded.

There's at least one DWC driver that has its own doorbell register
too. I suppose there's a way for the host driver to retrieve the GIC
address if configuration is needed. Doesn't seem to be needed on DWC
given the above.
