This looks great; my only comments are:

  - It might make sense to move the _DSM evaluation to pci-acpi.c
    instead of probe.c.

  - There are a few different things going on (move _DSM, look at DT
    host bridge in addition to of_chosen, integrate ACPI and DT flows,
    tweak usage of PCI_PROBE_ONLY vs bridge->preserve_config, use
    pci_assign_unassigned_root_bus_resources() when we didn't before),
    and I think they could be split into multiple patches to make it
    easier to read.

I took a stab at splitting this, but didn't quite complete it.  I'll
post that as v7-incomplete, and if you compare with v6, you'll see
what's missing (the PCI_PROBE_ONLY and assign resources stuff --
there's some subtlety there that wasn't obvious to me).
