    I was talking about IO not memory mostly here. MMIO wouldn't be a
    problem on powerpc as I said because we offset MMIO resources early
    after probe so that they contain effectively a CPU bus address, and in
    that case, 0 is definitely not going to happen for PCI devices or busses
    (even if it may on the bus, but the code we are talking about won't see
