SubjectRe: [patch 2/2] PNP: don't check disabled PCI BARs for conflicts in quirk_system_pci_resources()

Btw, why is that? We very much have a separate

* Reserve motherboard resources after PCI claim BARs,
* but before PCI assign resources for uninitialized PCI devices

which is called much later. That seems to be the _right_ point for any
quirks. It seems that the _real_ problem here is that the PnP device fixup
is simply called from the wrong point. Ie, why do we do device discovery -
and thus PnP quirks - in pnp_init (before the PCI bus is actually fully
initialized!), rather than in pnp_system_init?

Ie, maybe the proper thing to do is to simply be *consistent* in the PnP
subsystem, and always use fs_initcall (for the stated reasons!) for the
device discovery. Ie the patch would be something like the appended, and
then you really can depend on the PCI subsystem having been set up,
including having all relevant resources inserted into the tree!

Hmm? Bjorn? Everything that is true about "pnp_system_init" should be
equally true abote pnpacpi_init and pnpbios_init, no?
