SubjectRe: VGA PCI IO port reservations

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

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

and

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

?

Maybe the kernel might ask:

allocate_resource(restype, dev, RES_ALLOC_UNMOVABLE_HW, region);
