    Note that 'Memory at 100000000' is totally bogus as this is 32-bit BAR
    and respective PCI bridge is 32-bit either.

    Most interesting thing is that under 2.6.24 Tomas had

    PCI: Bridge: 0000:00:1e.0
    IO window: disabled.
    MEM window: 8c000000-8c0fffff
    PREFETCH window: disabled.

    but with 2.6.25

    PCI: Bridge: 0000:00:1e.0
    IO window: disabled.
    MEM window: 0x00000000-0x000fffff
    PREFETCH window: disabled.

    I'm sure that MEM window was actually 0x100000000-0x1000fffff as that
    printk shows only 8 hex digits.

    Yeah, it's resource issue for sure. The 00:1e.0 is a transparent bridge,
    so I blame commit 8fa5913d54f3b1e09948e6a0db34da887e05ff1f
    (PCI: remove transparent bridge sizing). It's wrong for two reasons:
    - we cannot ignore standard windows of a transparent bridge as they
    always positive decode, so they are potential source of address conflicts;
    - that patch just broke whole bridge setup logic in unpredictable way.

    What confused me a lot initially is that the patch was already there
    in 2.6.24. But I think that issue was somehow masked by 'unsigned
    longs' used in setup-bus.c all over the place instead of resource_size_t,
    which has been fixed by Ben in 2.6.25...
    I think that's why Thomas has everything working again without

    Thomas, can you put CONFIG_RESOURCES_64BIT=y back and either
    revert commit 8fa5913d54f3b1e09948e6a0db34da887e05ff1f, or
    just comment out these two lines in drivers/pci/setup-bus.c:

    if (bus->self->transparent)

    and check if it helps?
