I like it too, it is one way of removing the artificial domain dependency
from this driver.

I think that by removing that, we could switch to CONFIG_PCI_DOMAINS_GENERIC
on ARM32. I will remove the dependency in drivers/pci/host/pci-mvebu.c
introduced by commit 2613ba48. pci_sys_data.domain is always 0 in that
driver so its usefulness is doubtful, comments welcome, copied Jason in
if he has comments.

+		hw_pci.domain = i;

I will remove this since if we move to generic domains it is useless to
pass the value through hw_pci.

You can't, hw_pci.private_data is void **.
