Yeah, that seems like a reasonable compromise. Though in practice I'd
expect the full disable decode approach to work fairly well too. I
mean, if we really end up failing to allocate space for the device with
the root drive on it, there are probably bigger issues than just
failing to get a few bytes of I/O space for it...

OTOH like Robert said, many devices really only need either MMIO or IO
space enabled, not both, so having separate enable/disable routines for
them makes a lot of sense.
