* I was skeptic with patch 36/50 "Rename pcie-rcar.c to pcie-rcar-host.c"
this is required as patch 38/50 adds a new file named pcie-rcar.c. Open
for suggestions if this can be handled differently.
* In patch 37/48 I have dropped the changes for host driver as the patch
doesn't apply cleanly and manually applying it was resulting in a
big diff.
I have no good ideas how to avoid rename.

Given the change in locking previously in the series, manual review of
changes in this area might be good idea, anyway.
The locking changes are wrt EPF framework anyway. OK so I assume you are happy to manual changes to PCIe host driver while posting non RFC version.

In 4.19, there were 75 patches in this area so far, and 5 patches that
would reject due to the rename.

pavel@amd:~/cip/krc$ git log --pretty=oneline v4.19.. drivers/pci/controller/ | wc -l
pavel@amd:~/cip/krc$ git log --pretty=oneline v4.19.. drivers/pci/controller/pcie-rcar*.c | wc -l
5 we'll get a bit of additional workload from this. It would be
more scary if there were -rt specific changes in this area, but
hopefully there are none.

I expect that you are willing to help if -stable or -rt introduces
conflicting patches in this area?
