    I think we want to preserve the existing behaviour rather than change
    it. We really do want to request the device resource against its
    immediate parent because that is the way PCI works - if a devices
    resources don't fall within the parent bus resources, we want to
    know about it.

    May I suggest that ia64 sets the parent bus resources appropriately,
    which should relieve this problem (iow, pci_root_bus->resource[0..3])?
    If pci_find_parent_resource() is returning the wrong thing, its likely
    that other users of this function will also be getting the wrong answer.
