Thanks for this. It looks like the regions are added to the resource tree
twice, when booting with ACPI:

When the IORT creates the platform devices, platform_device_add() inserts
these resources but doesn't mark them busy. As I was testing with
devicetree I was missing this step.

Then the SMMU probe calls devm_ioremap_resource(), which tries to reserve
the resources and mark them busy this time. If there only was the non-busy
SMMU region inserted above, then __request_region() would adds the
reserved region as a child. However since there are smaller PMCG regions
as children of the SMMU region, __request_region() fails.

Another idea is to avoid mapping the IMPDEF registers in the SMMU driver.
I think it's nicer, and I'll post that patch shortly.
