There's already patches for that posted.

Just use 'make -k'.

This binding is completely confusing because 'PCIe endpoint' is
generally used (in context of bindings and Linux) for describing the
endpoint's system (i.e. the internal structure of a PCIe device (e.g.
add-in card) from the view of its own processor (not the host
system)). This binding seems to be describing the host system's view
of a PCIe device. We already have that! That's just the PCI bus
binding[1] which has existed for ~25 years.

For a non-DT system, what you are going to need here is some way to
create DT nodes of the PCI bus hierarchy or at least from your device
back up to the host bridge. I would suggest you solve that problem
separately from implementing the FPGA driver by making it work first
on a DT based system.
