Hm, not really.

PV Dom0 should have access to the MMCFG areas, PVH Dom0 shouldn't
because they will emulated by Xen.

So far MMCFG areas are not mapped into PVH Dom0 p2m, but they will be
once iommu_inclusive_mapping is implemented for PVH Dom0. So I
consider this a preparatory change before enabling
iommu_inclusive_mapping for PVH, rather than a fix. It would be a
fix if iommu_inclusive_mapping was already enabled for PVH Dom0.
