I started merging this series, but I didn't get very far. I stopped
at the "resources: Add probe_resource()" patch because I don't think
that interface makes sense yet. My work-in-progress is at
git:// on the
topic/yinghai-busn-alloc branch.

I *could* merge that branch, but I don't think they fix anything (that
would come in the later patches), and there are still some issues in
my mind.

- I think we really want a [bus 00-ff] resource for each *domain*,
with each host bridge in the domain requesting part of that range. I
think these patches only track bus number usage within each host
bridge, and I'm not sure there's any place we would detect conflicts
between host bridges.

- I think I made a mistake in the pci_create_root_bus() and
pci_scan_root_bus() interfaces. They currently take a bus number and
a list of resources, and we expect the arch to include the bus number
aperture in the list. The bus number argument should have been
replaced with a bus number aperture resource. The bus number aperture
is essential, while the MMIO/IO aperture list may be empty. And it's
stupid to pass both the starting bus number and a bus resource that
contains the starting bus number. Fixing this would make some of
these patches quite a bit simpler.

- In some of the arches (sparc, powerpc), you added a bus number
resource right next to existing first_busno, last_busno fields. So
now that data lives two places, which will bite us later.
