The above look fine to me.  I'm not really an ACPI expert so if
anybody has an issue with these (particularly the latter three), speak

This one handles only memory offsets.  Any particular reason for this?
Perhaps there should be at least a check which will warn/panic if a
non-zero I/O offset is found?

Hmmh, are you expecting other platform-specific work will have to be
done in pci_enable_device() in the future?  If all we really need here
is a platform-specific PCI-device -> IOMMU mapping, perhaps we should
call it just that.  OTOH, I can see that this is a natural callback
point.  Any comments by folks doing the hw support for other
(hotplug-capable) machines?
