I like this approach a lot. Thanks for working it up. It's a nice
small change with very little impact to other architectures, and you
have a nice clear changelog. You might mention something about the
fact that by default, the bus starts out with all of ioport_resource
and iomem_resource -- that will mean something to people who know how
host bridges work.

Using pci_bus_add_resource() here *seems* like it should be the right
thing, but I don't think it will work correctly.

The problem is that struct pci_bus has both a table of resources
(bus->resource[]) *and* a list (bus->resources).
pci_bus_add_resource() always puts the new resource on the list, but
various arch code still references the table directly, e.g., sparc has
"pbus->resource[0] = &pbm->io_space" in pcibios_fixup_bus().

As written, I think this patch will break sparc because the host
bridge will end up with both pbm->io_space (in the table) and
ioport_resource (in the list).

I think something like this would work, though:

if (bus_res)
list_add_tail(&b->resources, &bus_res->list);
else {
b->resource[0] = &ioport_resource;
b->resource[1] = &iomem_resource;
}
