This was my idea, and it wasn't a good one, sorry.

The ATS, PRI, and PASID interfaces are all sort of related and are
used only by the IOMMU drivers, so it probably makes sense to put them
all together.  Right now the ATS stuff is in linux/pci.h and PRI/PASID
stuff is in linux/pci-ats.h.  Maybe the right thing would be to move
the ATS stuff to pci-ats.h.

I previously moved it from pci-ats.h to pci.h with ff9bee895c4d ("PCI:
Move ATS declarations to linux/pci.h so they're all together") with
the excuse of putting the external ATS interfaces next to
pci_ats_init().  But that really looks like it was a mistake because
pci_ats_init() is a PCI-internal thing and its declaration should
probably be in drivers/pci/pci.h instead.

There's also a useless "struct pci_ats" forward declaration in
linux/pci.h that I should have removed with d544d75ac96a ("PCI: Embed
ATS info directly into struct pci_dev").
