Subject: [PATCH V6 0/5] LPC: legacy ISA I/O support

This patch supports the IPMI-bt device attached to the Low-Pin-Count interface
implemented on Hisilicon Hip06/Hip07 SoC.
			| LPC host|
	                |         |

When master accesses those peripherals beneath the Hip06 LPC, a specific LPC
driver is needed to make LPC host generate the standard LPC I/O cycles with
the target peripherals'I/O port addresses. But on curent arm64 world, there is
no real I/O accesses. All the I/O operations through in/out pair are based on
MMIO which is not satisfied the I/O mechanism on Hip06 LPC.
To solve this issue and keep the relevant existing peripherals' driver
untouched, this patch set redefines the in/out() pair to support both the IO
operations for Hip06 LPC and the original MMIO. The way specific to Hip06 is
named as indirect-IO in this patchset.

Changes from V5:
  - Made the extio driver more generic and locate in lib/;
  - Supported multiple indirect-IO bus instances;
  - Extended the pci_register_io_range() to support indirect-IO, then dropped
  the I/O reservation used in previous patchset;
  - Reimplemented the ACPI LPC support;
  - Fixed some bugs, including the compile error on other archs, the module
  building failure found by Ming Lei, etc;

Changes from V4:
  - Some revises based on the comments from Bjorn, Rob on V4;
  - Fixed the compile error on some platforms, such as openrisc;

Changes from V3:
  - UART support deferred to a separate patchset; This patchset only support
  ipmi device under LPC;
  - LPC bus I/O range is fixed to 0 ~ (PCIBIOS_MIN_IO - 1), which is separeted
  from PCI/PCIE PIO space;
  - Based on Arnd's remarks, removed the ranges property from Hip06 lpc dts and
  added a new fixup function, of_isa_indirect_io(), to get the I/O address
  directly from LPC dts configurations;
  - Support in(w,l)/out(w,l) for Hip06 lpc I/O;
  - Decouple the header file dependency on the gerenic io.h by defining in/out
  as normal functions in c file;
  - removed unused macro definitions in the LPC driver;

Changes from V2:
  - Support the PIO retrieval from the linux PIO generated by
  pci_address_to_pio. This method replace the 4K PIO reservation in V2;
  - Support the flat-tree earlycon;
  - Some revises based on Arnd's remarks;
  - Make sure the linux PIO range allocated to Hip06 LPC peripherals starts
  from non-ZERO;

Changes from V1:
  - Support the ACPI LPC device;
  - Optimize the dts LPC driver in ISA compatible mode;
  - Reserve the IO range below 4K in avoid the possible conflict with PCI host
  IO ranges;
  - Support the LPC uart and relevant earlycon;
