Thanks for pointing this out.
As far as I understand, the patch changes the following for my use case
(Coreboot + U-Boot, no TPL and no SPL):
* Before: plat->mmio_base was read from the PCI BAR in apl_p2sb_probe()
* After: plat->mmio_base is read from the "early-regs" device tree property
I think this is fine, Coreboot does not change the address in BAR0 and I can
use the "early-regs" property in my device tree.

Tested on an Apollo Lake board with Coreboot + U-Boot.
