Hi Arnd,

I will try to improve the error handling in the next patchset version.
However I am still confused about the earlier discussion on
pci_register_io_range(). Your suggestion initially was to return an
error in the default weak implementation, but in your last email you
are talking about returning 'port'. My idea when I've introduced the
helper function was that it would return an error if it fails to
register the IO range and zero otherwise. I agree that we can treat
the default 'do nothing with the IO range' case as an error, with
the caveat that will force architectures that use this code to
provide their own implementation of pci_register_io_range() in order
to avoid failure, even for the cases where the architecture has a 1:1
mapping between IO and CPU addresses.

I've just noticed that my home server has silently dropped my reply
to you from the 7th of March, so I'm going to resend it using ARM's
setup.

Best regards,
Liviu
