SubjectRe: [PATCH] pci: support alignments upto 8Gb in pbus_size_mem()

So the BIOS left the 8Gb BAR unassigned, and you got the "disabling
BAR ... (bad alignment)" message when Linux tried to enable it?

How do we know 8Gb is the correct new limit? Are we going to be
fixing this again when we see a 16Gb or a 32Gb BAR? Do we need a
better algorithm that doesn't have a limit like this?

This patch fixed
