On ARM pci_mmap_page_range requires pci_sys_data to retrieve its
mem_offset parameter. I had a look, and I do not understand *why*
it is required in that function, so I am asking. That function
is basically used to map PCI resources to userspace, IIUC, through
/proc or /sysfs file mappings. As far as I understand those mappings
expect VMA pgoff to be the CPU address when files representing resources
are mmapped from /proc and 0 when mmapped from /sys (I mean from
userspace, then VMA pgoff should be updated by the kernel to map the
resource).

Question is: why pci_mmap_page_range() should apply an additional
shift to the VMA pgoff based on pci_sys_data.mem_offset, which represents
the offset from cpu->bus offset. I do not understand that. PowerPC
does not seem to apply that fix-up (in PowerPC __pci_mmap_make_offset there
is commented out code which prevents the pci_mem_offset shift to be
applied). I think it all boils down to what the userspace interface is
expecting when the memory areas are mmapped, if anyone has comments on
this that is appreciated.

Thanks,
Lorenzo
