Sure. But selecting only "DM_PCI" and not "PCI" leads to these issues:

WARNING: unmet direct dependencies detected for DM_PCI
   Depends on [n]: PCI [=n] && DM [=y]
   Selected by [y]:
   - ARCH_OCTEON [=y] && <choice>

It doesn't make sense to have DM_PCI enabled and PCI not. Same happens
with DM_SPI BTW.

How would you like me to solve this? Enable PCI (and SPI etc) in the
board defconfig file? This will lead to problems with git-bisecting
though, as the Kconfig change depends on the defconfig change and
vice versa. I'll squash the Kconfig and defconfig updates in one
patch because of this.

I'll combine all these changes including the GPIO driver update, all
the dts updates and a newly introduced simple clk driver in a new
patchset shortly.
