Yep.  Added to the list.

Ah, I see the problem.  PCI regs are being accessed before
mv64x60_enumerate_buses() is called which sets the hose bus & device
numbers.  Actually, I never expected fw to ever change the dev number
from zero so I was only really concerned about setting the bus number in
that routine.  For some reason, your firmware must be changing it to 3.

FYI, look at the "PCI P2P Configuration" register
(MV64x60_PCI[01]_P2P_CONFIG (0x1d14/0x1d94)).  Apparently your firmware
sets the device number of your hoses to 3 for some reason (default is 0
for PCI, 0x1f for PCI-X).

Added to the list.

I think Matt answered this one.
