    Most cards on the market provide I/O BARs as a convenience to legacy
    BIOSes; they don't need the I/O BAR functionality from inside a
    full-featured OS. There are a few, key, exceptions, mainly in the form
    of legacy-interface devices like UARTs and VGA (note that VGA has its
    own routing bits and is therefore unaffected by this problem.)
