i think the warning should be more prominent and should also generate a
stack trace for the kerneloops client to pick up. A WARN() printout
would be perfect here.

Also, we should do subsequent commits as well enumerating all the other
'magic' non-PCI-enumerated bus memory resources that matter on a PC
platform: lapic address and io-apic address(es). Perhaps even the ACPI
NVS and ACPI data areas that are enumerated in e820.

(the lapic address will likely never be present in a PCI device - but
maybe the IO-APIC address can be present in theory - so lets protect
it.)

Another suggestion: perhaps this all should be done as a new, "sticky"
resource type flag [defined in include/linux/ioport.h and implemented in
kernel/resource.c], which would be inserted by the hpet driver, and
which would be listened to by pcibios_allocate_resources()
automatically. If the resource manager later on finds a generic-looking,
unclaimed PCI device whose BAR matches on it, then the new semantics
would mean that the device's BAR will not be touched.

This approach would be even more generic and would allow a robust
insertion of maybe-PCI addresses into the resource tree.
