I think Cobalt needs something like the patch below, because I think in
your working system, pata_via is using I/O port 0x1f0, not 0xf00001f0.
That means the the port the driver sees in the pci_dev resource is
identical to the port number that appears on the PCI bus, so there is no

There are a few other places that may set non-zero io_offset values:
bcm1480, bcm1480ht. txx9_alloc_pci_controller(), bridge_probe(), and
octeon_pcie_setup().  I don't know whether they have similar issues.

    [MIPS] remove Cobalt I/O space offset
    On Cobalt, "inb(x)" produces an I/O port access to port "x" on the PCI
    bus, which means the io_offset is zero and CPU (resource) addresses are
    identical to PCI bus addresses.  Correcting this means we can remove
    the IORESOURCE_PCI_FIXED check from pcibios_fixup_device_resources().
    The io_map_base is used internally by pci_iomap(), inb(), and other I/O
    port access functions to generate an MMIO access to the address that
    produces the desired I/O port PCI transaction.
    [Cobalt plat_mem_setup() does this:
    rather than using cobalt_pci_controller.io_map_base, but the value's
    the same, and I don't know enough to clean that up.]
