Because the HW doesn't expose a standard PCI Bridge. On mvebu, the main
initial motivation was to be able to configure MBus windows dynamically
depending on PCI endpoints that are connected.

For AArdvark, the rationale is documented in commit
8a3ebd8de328301aacbe328650a59253be2ac82c:

commit 8a3ebd8de328301aacbe328650a59253be2ac82c
Author: Zachary Zhang <zhangzg@marvell.com>

    PCI: aardvark: Implement emulated root PCI bridge config space
    
    The PCI controller in the Marvell Armada 3720 does not implement a
    software-accessible root port PCI bridge configuration space. This
    causes a number of problems when using PCIe switches or when the Max
    Payload size needs to be aligned between the root complex and the
    endpoint.
    
    Implementing an emulated root PCI bridge, like is already done in the
    pci-mvebu driver for older Marvell platforms allows to solve those
    issues, and also to support features such as ASR, PME, VC, HP.
