This patch causes all ppc64:powernv qemu emulations to fail.
The problem is always the same: The root file system can not be mounted.

Key difference seems to be that PCI devices are no longer instantiated
with this patch applied. Specifically, I see

[    1.153780][    T1] pci 0005:01     : [PE# fd] Setting up window#0 0..7fffffff pg=10000^M
[    1.154475][    T1] pci 0005:01     : [PE# fd] Enabling 64-bit DMA bypass^M
[    1.155749][    T1] pci 0005:01:00.0: Adding to iommu group 0^M
[    1.160543][    T1] pci 0005:00:00.0: enabling device (0105 -> 0107)^M

in both cases, but (exmple nvme) I don't see

[   13.520561][   T11] nvme nvme0: pci function 0005:01:00.0^M
[   13.521747][   T45] nvme 0005:01:00.0: enabling device (0100 -> 0102)^M

after this patch has been applied.

Reverting th patch plus its fix resolves the problem.

Bisect log attached.
