Sorry for the late response! Several days' leave....
Do you want to bypass of_translate_address and pci_address_to_pio for the 
registered specific PIO?
I think the bypass for of_translate_address is ok, but worry some new issues 
will emerge without the
conversion between physical address and logical/linux port number.

When PCI host bridge which support IO operations is configured and enabled, the 
pci_address_to_pio will
populate the logical IO range from ZERO for the first host bridge. Our LPC will 
also use part of the IO range
started from ZERO. It will make in/out enter the wrong branch possibly.

In V2, the 0 - 0x1000 logical IO range is reserved for LPC use only. But it 
seems not so good. In this way,
PCI has no chance to use low 4K IO range(logical).

So, in V3, applying the conversion from physical/cpu address to logical/linux 
IO port for any IO ranges,
including the LPC, but recorded the logical IO range for LPC. When calling 
in/out with a logical port address,
we can check this port fall into LPC logical IO range and get back the real IO.

Do you have further comments about this??

What about add the specific quirk for Hip06 LPC in of_empty_ranges_quirk()??

you know, there are several cases in which of_translate_address return 
And if we only check the special port range, it seems a bit risky. If some 
device want to use this port range
when no hip06 LPC is configured, the checking does not work. I think we should 
also check the relevant device.
