Hi, Everyone,

This patch series adds support for the Switchtec MRPC DMA mode.

Switchtec switches supports 2 MRPC interaction modes: MRPC normal mode and
MRPC DMA mode, a new feature in the latest firmware versions. MRPC normal 
mode requires the host to read the MRPC command status and output data. 
In MRPC DMA mode the command status and output data are pushed directly to
host memory and issues an interrupt upon completion. The advantage of MRPC
DMA mode is avoiding potential high latency response from the Memory Read

Additionally, we've made the following changes:

* Improve the efficiency of filling MRPC Input buffer by enabling write 
  combining on MRPC region of BAR
* Software workaround for delay responded Memory READ TLPs that access 
  the BAR
* And several bug fixes

I've reviewed this series from it's conception on github[1] and would
like to see it land in the upstream driver, so for the entire series:
