Since I'm looking at this now, perhaps I can open the discussion here. Have you
thought about how this works yet? Right now I'm thinking there are two "drivers":
cxl_port: Switches (and ACPI0016)
cxl_mem: The memory device's HDM decoders

For port, probe() will figure out that the thing is an upstream port, call
cxl_probe_component_regs and then call devm_cxl_add_port(). I think that's
straight forward.

For the memory device we've already probed the thing via class code so there is
no need to use this driver registration, however, I think it would be nice to do
so. Is there a clean way to do that?

Also, I'd like to make sure we're on the same page about struct cxl_decoder.
Right now they are only created for active HDM decoders. Going forward, we can
either maintain a count of unused decoders on the given CXL component, or we can
instantiate a struct cxl_decoder that isn't active, ie. no interleave ways
granularit, base, etc. What's your thinking there?
