Hi Arnd,

I did try to get resource information from its DTB node first, the 
"hostbridge" node do can be found successfully, however, unfortunately, 
as I put in the notes in that function, the #address-cells and 
#size-cells specified by its parent node are both 2, but the cell number 
used in its "reg" property is actually 1, as

reg = <0xf8000000 0x1000000>;

which will make of_address_to_resource() failed with -EINVAL; that's why 
I have to set it up from scratch manually.
