I have not found any dts file for a 32-bit platform with support
for a 64-bit prefetchable BAR, and there are very few that even
have a pcie slot (as opposed on on-board devices) you could
plug a card into.

That said, I also don't think we should encourage the use of
floating-point code in random device drivers. There is really
no excuse for the amdgpu driver to use floating point math
here, and we should get AMD to fix their driver instead.
