There are first patches to enable PCI on ARM, see wip/arm-ivshmem.
However, these patches where first of all hacked up to emulate PCI and
provide that shared memory device, and they weren't used yet to
partition a real PCI bus. May magically work, or we may still miss some
bits, need to look into details. Maybe after getting the ARM64 stuff out
(that should be soon).

For now, using PCI in one cell mean taking away any access from the
other. So you will probably have to disable PCI completely in the root
cell (not sure if that will work on the Jetson).
