It would be a safe approach.
Or, maybe another non-pcie_bus_config thing, I don't know (so
the pcie_bus_config is left for the user).

Ok. Is there a DT skeleton file somewhere, so I can try to boot the
board (without Laguna extras) in DT mode?
At first, I only need CPU + RAM + console serial port.

I assume adding this to U-Boot should be acceptable (for Gateworks,
too). They are already doing this to their i.MX6 line Ventana.

GPIO is a bit less important ATM, since the boards can boot without it.
