    Is this not an argument for a more flexible resource allocation
    API? One offering both:

    res = allocate_resource(restype, dev, RES_ALLOC_UNUSED, region);


    res = allocate_resource(restype, dev_ RES_ALLOC_HW, region);


    Maybe the kernel might ask:

    allocate_resource(restype, dev, RES_ALLOC_UNMOVABLE_HW, region);
