I'll have to wait for the message to arrive here or in a web-archive to
answer that (...) but please note that I am already fine with the
original code; it is the fix for my own issue that's IN mainline (ie,
not only check for MEM resource overlaps but also IO) that now made
Frans Pop yell due to his machine now spitting out lots of I/O overlap
warnings -- which turned out to not be real overlaps, but due to a
uninialized BAR.

You might want Frans to test this though then...
