    Well, it looks to me like a harmless message and I'll just ignore it, I think,
    as long as the affected pci device works properly.

    This was part of your lspci:

    Region 0: Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
    Region 1: Memory at f0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
    Region 3: Memory at f9000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]

    See region 0.
