I don't know what should be the correct fix for this.
'pci_remap_iospace' for mips is added in 'pci-generic.c' which in only
compiled when 'CONFIG_PCI_DRIVERS_GENERIC' is selected. In mips there
is also 'CONFIG_PCI_DRIVERS_LEGACY' option that include 'pci-legacy.c'
and drivers in 'arch/mips/pci' are normally defining this
'CONFIG_PCI_DRIVERS_LEGACY'. For the failing build
mips_nlm_xlp_defconfig, none of them are defined and code (I guess
./arch/mips/pci/pci-xlp.c) is just initializing PCI calling
'pcibios_init' and not using PCI core apis and 'pci_remap_iospace' at
all like other drivers inside 'arch/mips/pci'. So I think the correct
thing to do would be just move this mips architecture dependent define
to be dependant of CONFIG_PCI_DRIVERS_GENERIC. The following patch
would be enough:

diff --git a/arch/mips/include/asm/pci.h b/arch/mips/include/asm/pci.h
index 35270984a5f0..421231f55935 100644

@@ -20,7 +20,9 @@

 #include <linux/of.h>

Thomas, if you are ok with this, let me know and I'll send this patch
to be added to staging tree for fixing this issue.

Best regards,
