The same function that handles the non-translated region would
do that conversion.

Right, and the same translation can be used in __of_address_to_resource()
going the opposite way.

I don't think we need to duplicate much, we can probably safely
assume that there are no nontrivial ranges in devices below the LPC
node, so we just walk up the bus to see if the node is a child
(or possibly grandchild etc) of the LPC bus, and treat any IO port
number under there as a physical port number, which has a known
offset from the Linux I/O port number.

I don't really like that idea, that quirk is meant to work around
broken DTs, but we can just make the DT valid and implement the
code properly.

Scanning the child devices sounds really wrong, please register just
one range that covers the bus to keep the workaround as simple
as possible.

That seems really complex for something that can be quite simple.
The only thing we need to worry about is that the io_range_list
contains an entry for the LPC bus so we don't conflict with the
PCI buses.
