I've been working on a relatively architecture agnostic PCI host bridge driver
and also wanted to avoid duplicating more generic DT parsing code for PCI

I've ended up with a patch which provides an iterator for returning resources
based on the the typical 'ranges' binding. This has ended up living in
drivers/of/address.c. I originally started out in drivers/of/pci.c and
drivers/pci/pci-of.c but found there were good (and static) implementations in
drivers/of/address.c which can be reused (e.g. of_bus_pci_get_flags,

I'm not just ready to post it - but can do before early next week if you can
