And to the fact that the value 0x1f0 should only be ever seen in BAR0 and
0x170 in BAR2 even if they would have been read off the chips (some chips have
these values reading back even in legacy mode, and even could malfunction if
other values are written there), not fixed up there, and certainly not in BAR1
or BAR3, so it's quite pointless to look in these BARs too.

WBR, Sergei
