However, it looks me it was by design that phb->regs mapping would be there forever where it would be used in pnv_ioda_get_inval_reg(), so is just that check_early_ioremap_leak() initcall too strong?

The warning there is junk. The PHBs are setup at boot and never torn
down so we're not "leaking" the mapping. It's supposed to be there for
the lifetime of the kernel.

That said, we could probably move the PCI setup to a point later in
boot where the normal ioremap can be be used. We would have to check
for initcalls which depend on the PHBs being setup and delay those too
