Can SIV generate a big dump of similar output for all devices at once?
Then I could avoid bugging you for "look at this, look at that," etc :-)

I'm particularly interested in the bridges (the PCIe root ports, in
this case). I think Windows moved the 00:01.0 prefetchable aperture.
We know from the Linux dmesg that the 00:01.0 bridge was initially
configured like this:

pci 0000:00:01.0: PCI bridge to [bus 01-01]
pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge window [io 0x7000-0x9fff]
pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge window [mem 0xfdd00000-0xfddfffff]
pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge window [mem 0xbdf00000-0xddefffff 64bit pref]
Based on https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16009#c11, I think
Windows moved the prefetchable aperture:

Plage mémoire: 00000000FDD00000 - 00000000FDDFFFFF
Plage mémoire: 00000000C0000000 - 00000000DFFFFFFF <== moved
Plage d'E/S: 7000 - 9FFF
Note that the aperture size is still 0x20000000.
Since this new [mem 0xc0000000-0xdfffffff] aperture would conflict
with this 00:1c.4 aperture:
pci 0000:00:1c.4: bridge window [mem 0xddf00000-0xdfefffff 64bit pref]
I think it's likely that Windows moved the 1c.4 aperture as well (or
maybe even disabled it, since it leads to buses 06-07, and there are
no devices on those buses).
