aardvark and mvebu have one very strong connection: they are the only
two drivers making use of the PCI Bridge emulation logic in
drivers/pci/pci-bridge-emul.c:

drivers/pci$ git grep pci-bridge-emul
akefile:obj-$(CONFIG_PCI_BRIDGE_EMUL)  += pci-bridge-emul.o
controller/pci-aardvark.c:#include "../pci-bridge-emul.h"
controller/pci-mvebu.c:#include "../pci-bridge-emul.h"
pci-bridge-emul.c:#include "pci-bridge-emul.h"

I haven't read the whole thread, but it is important to keep in mind
that on those two platforms, the PCI Bridge seen by Linux is *not* a
real HW bridge. It is faked by the the pci-bridge-emul code. So if this
code has defects/bugs in how it emulates a PCI Bridge behavior, you
might see weird things.

Best regards,

Thomas
