Fix I/O space setup, so that on non-PCI systems using inb()/outb()
won't crash the system. Some drivers may try to probe I/O space and for
that purpose we can just allocate some normal memory initially. Drivers
trying to reserve a region will fail early as we set the size to 0. If
a real I/O space is present, the PCI/PCIe support code will re-adjust
the values accordingly.
Tested with EdgeRouter Lite by enabling CONFIG_SERIO_I8042 that caused
the originally reported crash.

Do we have any guarantee that this will happen before the
arch/mips/pci/* arch_initcalls ?
Yes, it's guaranteed by the linking order ie. in which order the obj-y
stuff gets listed in mips/Makefile. Currently cavium-octeon/ is processed
Yes, I understand that. The problem is when we start to use things like
GCC's LTO, where we effectively compile the entire kernel as a single
file. Will this still work then? I would rather not screw around with it.
Can you test it by making it a core_initcall() instead? If that works
you can add Acked-by: me.
