This is all right. The only thing I still don't understand - how this 
stuff work without PCI IRQ (don't know much about 8266 though). On my 
8272 only one IRQ is produced and it should be demux'ed in order for PCI 
devices to work. I agree that the siumcr stuff would better reside in 
the firmware, and I have submitted related patch to the u-boot-users 
list, but I have no idea whether it would be accepted or not (Wolfgang?).

The main point I actually dislike in the current m8260 implementation is 
that it adds defines for the PCI memory map while it exists (and already 
included) in platforms/pq2ads.h. The memory maps are nearly the same so 
we should decide which one will remain.
