Sure, I'll split it.

Maybe it's not necessary, but we use guards in almost all private headers. So I added this to make this file look not so different.

I've studied your patch that adds wrapper of __pci_read_base. If you are going to push it again, I'm ok with keeping the name unchanged.

Thanks for pointing this out. I wonder how the PC_ROM_ADDRESS_ENABLE mask is set for those non-standard BARs like MCHBAR after the probe stage -- I don't think pci_update_resource will take care of them. So how about adding BAR type checking again pci_bar_mem32 in pci_update_resource so we can set the bit there?

Oh, you caught it.

I guess pci_alloc_child_bus has done this so we don't have to do it again.
